Business: Gautam Adani became the third richest person in the world, now behind only Jeff Bozos and Musk

According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Adani’s net worth reached $ 137.4 billion, this year his net worth increased by $ 60.9 billion

Indian billionaire Gautam Adani has now become the third richest person in the world. Gautam Adani has overtaken Bernard Arnault of France with a net worth of $ 137.4 billion and now for the first time an Asian has entered the top three of the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Gautam Adani is now only behind US’s Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos in the rankings. At the same time, Mukesh Ambani, chairman of Reliance Industries Limited, is at number 11 with a net worth of $ 91.9 billion.

Adani’s net worth reaches $137.4 billion

According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, 60-year-old Adani’s net worth has increased by $ 60.9 billion this year and now his net worth has reached $ 137.4 billion. Adani’s net worth crossed $100 billion in April, surpassing Mukesh Ambani in February and surpassed Microsoft’s Bill Gates to reach number four in the world’s rich list last month. Adani, however, was able to outpace some of the world’s richest American billionaires partly because he donated a large amount of his wealth to charity. Gates donated $20 billion to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in July, while Warren Buffett has already donated more than $35 billion to charity.

Adani Group shares up up to 1000 per cent

It is worth noting that after the year 2020, some shares of Adani Group have seen a rise of up to 1000 percent. Due to this, Adani’s net worth grew very rapidly. On Monday, his net worth increased by $ 1.12 billion to reach above $ 137 billion. On the other hand, France’s Bernard Arnault’s net worth declined by $1.37 billion to $136 billion.
