Bernard Arnault is a business magnate, investor, and art collector from France. He is the founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of the world’s largest luxury goods corporation, LVMH Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton. Forbes estimates that Arnault and his family have a net worth of US$240 billion as of April 2023, making him the richest individual in the world.
Bernard Arnault was born on 5 March 1949 in France.
Day Master (Day Pillar)
If you have been following our post up until now, you can see that Bernard Arnault is also a Jia Wood Day Master. There is some similarities with Elon Musk here, but please do not jump to the conclusion straight away that all Jia Wood are born to be billionaires.
Remember that Jia Wood needs to diversify their business and make it big and successful. Bernard Arnault simply makes it with style and with more success and glory than others. His company is LVMH. One of the biggest and most powerful luxury goods in the world.
Unlike Elon Musk, the French investor Bernard Arnault has had the idea of creating a group of luxury brands since the 1980s. While many investors and investment bankers at that time bought companies and sold them, Bernard Arnault did exactly the opposite. He bought companies and grew it even bigger.
Approximately 60 subsidiaries of LVMH administer 75 luxurious brands. Tiffany & Co., Christian Dior, Fendi, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Loewe, Loro Piana, Kenzo, Celine, Sephora, Princess Yachts, TAG Heuer, and Bulgari are among these brands. Typically, the subsidiaries are managed independently under six branches: Fashion Group, Wines and Spirits, Perfumes and Cosmetics, Watches and Jewellery, Selective Distribution, and Other Activities. The oldest of the LVMH brands is the wine producer Chateau d’Yquem, which dates back to 15th-century France. LVMH is led by Bernard Arnault as chairman and CEO.
As you can see from the Bernard Arnault Bazi chart, you will see that he does have a nobleman at the year pillar (at the Ox Zodiac). This indicates that Bernard Arnault has an external group of people who are very helpful and even noble to him. Whatever he does, there will always be some people who can help him achieve what he wants.
Bernard Arnault was born in the month of March, in the season of spring. Jia Wood is synonymous with a tree in Chinese Metaphysics. Therefore, it means that Bernard Arnault was born in the season.
Usually, people who are born during the season is better off than those who are not. This is because their parents are able to provide them with a stable and higher-than-average lifestyle than most other people.
Bernard Arnault comes from a background in construction and manufacturing, and that has nothing to do with luxury goods. He can continue to run the family business at that time, but he decided to choose another different route. And he basically redefine what luxury goods are are and how it can be sustainable at a world class as a public listed company.
Spring (Month Pillar)
If you know Chinese Metaphysics well enough, you would definitely know this. The spring season is where anything that is related to wood. Fashion, clothing, and bags are all related to the spring season.
And here we have one of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs, Bernard Arnault, in the world of luxury goods in fashion, clothing, and bags. He was also born in the spring season. Is this a coincidence?
You can certainly think this way: Bernard Arnault was born in the spring season, and he is certainly in the right industry, and his passion for it too.
Leadership (Year Pillar)
Leading by style. Under Bernard Arnault’s leadership, LVMH manages a stable fleet of 75 luxurious brands. How can any company manage this? Most companies are struggling with just a brand of their own; can he manage 75 (luxurious brand)? It seems impossible for the majority of us.
Bernard Arnault was born in the Ox year, according to Chinese Metaphysics. This is one of the Keepers profiles. People who are born in the Keepers profile like to keep (or horde) things. Maybe this indicates why Bernard Arnault bought and kept all the luxurious brands he could get in the company. Arnault’s collection includes work by Picasso, Yves Klein, Henry Moore, and Andy Warhol.
Leading the company by letting the companies (the luxury brands) lead themselves. This is also something that is very different from the rest of the world. When a company is sold, basically everything changes from the top management, especially when a listed company is expected to perform well financially every year. I believe Bernard Arnault do not intervene with the designs and operations of these companies, and these lead them to produce the overall stellar growth of the LVMH Group.
Bernard Arnault was born on a Jia Wood day, in the month of spring, in the year of the Ox. If we take a quick look at the Bazi, we can make a sweeping statement and say that this person is rich and he will most likely continue his family business handed down to him.
Instead Bernard Arnault is not just rich now, he surpassed his own parents business and became “super-rich”. Most people will become an ordinary rich person if they come from a rich family. To become “super-rich” in this process is not easy at all.
If we take a closer look to the Jia Wood in Chinese Metaphysics, it’s like a tree. All trees continue to grow. Jia Wood profile needs to diversify as well. As we know, LVMH luxurious brands are well diversified into different classes of luxury goods and also all over the world. Jia Wood profile also look at the broader view and that’s how Bernard Arnault chooses luxurious brands that he wants in LVMH carefully.
From clothing, accessories, jewelry, cosmetics, and watches to wines. Almost everything you can aspect from a rich person house can be found in one of the LVMH umbrella.
Another aspects of Jia Wood is to branch out, and what this means is that diversification is the key of growth. Please do not be mistaken by just simply buying anything for the purpose of diversification. It means that Jia Wood profile should grow a business, makes it profitable and let them grow by themselves whenever they can, and then diversify (or buy) another business and make it profitable, and repeat the process again. Did Bernard Arnault did this? I personally think so, but he did it with his own style luxuriously.
The above is Bernard Arnault 10 years luck pillar. Just by reading it, you can see that Bernard Arnault have the best year of financial luck from age 69-89. This is also noticeable when the Earth element can be see in the heavenly stem. It means that the world will see how rich he is within this time frame.
In July 2019, Arnault became the second-richest man in the world, with a net worth of $103 billion. He is listed as “Bernard Arnault & family” on the Forbes Billionaires list. Forbes estimated the Bernard Arnault & family fortune to be $158 billion in 2022.Wikipedia
Coincidence? His wealth estimate jumped to the world number 1 at the age 69 luck pillar?
At the age 69 luck pillar, there is also another nobleman (at the Zodiac of Goat). What does this mean? A different group of nobleman perhaps? It’s like a “twin turbo” now. Can Bernard Arnault achieve what’s impossible to most people during this luck pillar? This will depends on what he wanted to achieve in life.
As we do not know his time of birth, and we do not wish to speculate at which hour Bernard Arnault was born, it’s challenging to speculate. But what we do know is, the wealth that Bernard Arnault and his family is holding will most probably be top of the chart for a very long time.
