The prestigious title of the World’s Richest Man was held by a certain Mexican Carlos Slim between 2010 and 2013. Currently the second richest man by the nearest of margins behind Bill Gates, Slim possesses sizable holdings in a number of Mexican companies in fields like communications, media, technology, airlines, finance, retailing and real estate through his global conglomerate, Grupo Carso that was split into three companies several years after its formation. Having a glance at the worth of all his assets individually and his net worth, which stands at an estimated $78.5 billion, it can be easily deduced that Slim’s major asset is undisputedly his telecommunications holding company, Carso Global Telecom, which includes telecom giants such as the likes of Telmex, Telcel and America Movil.
After honing his business skills as a trader post his college graduation, Carlos Slim dabbed his first hand at business with a brokerage firm that invested in private businesses that ranged from construction and manufacturing to even retail outlets and restaurants. Slim gradually broadened his horizons to fields like mining, food, tobacco, oil, real estate, printing businesses etc. over the years and invested heavily till he was 45 in 1985.
Slim’s conglomerate Grupo Carso went public in 1990, soon after which he decided to enter the field of telecommunications. The largest of Slim’s three acquired telecommunication companies mentioned above is America Movil, which is also the fourth largest mobile network operator in the world today. In fact, Telmex and Telcel are two of the many subsidiary companies of America Movil. Although the headquarters of America Movil is located in Mexico City and their telecom services (Telmex and Telcel) are monopolized pretty much over entire Mexico, the subsidiary companies operate in almost all the Latin American countries, the Caribbean and even the United States.
One of the major subsidiaries of America Movil operating in the United States, Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands is TracFone Wireless, Inc., a prepaid wireless service provider. Popular products and services enjoyed by the masses of brands such as Simple Mobile, Telcel America, Net10 Wireless, SafeLink, TracFone, Straight Talk and Page Plus Cellular in the US, Caribbean and other Latin American nations today belong to TracFone Wireless. Many of these products and services have been incorporated in the Lifeline Assistance Program that was launched by the US government. The program is aimed at providing free cell phone or landline services to low-income eligible families in order to help them reduce their phone bills to the bare minimum. Safelink Wireless has emerged as the largest Lifeline cell phone provider in the US today.
In Mexico alone, Telmex currently controls 80% of the landlines while Telcel has acquired over 70% of the cell phone market. America Movil operates in 26 other countries besides Mexico and has a whopping 292 million cell phone users collectively in those countries. Such is the alarming rate of increasing monopoly of Carlos Slim’s various telecommunication ventures over the Latin American countries in particular, that the Mexican legislators had to recently inculcate major reforms in the telecommunication industry in order to restore some decent competition in the hope that it would eventually lead to better services and reduced rates for the same.
