New Delhi, April 4 (IndiaToday) – Gautam Adani, the chairman of Adani Group, became Asia’s richest person with a net worth touching $100 billion. Adani is at 10th position in the global Index, while Reliance Industries chairman Ambani slipped to 11th position.
According to Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Adani has also become a centibillionaire — a person with a net worth of $100 billion or above. Adani has added $23.5 billion to his net worth in the last year, the highest in the list. Meanwhile, Ambani had added $9.03 billion to his net worth in the same period.
The 59-year-old founder of Adani Group controls companies ranging from ports and aerospace to thermal energy and coal. Meanwhile, Ambani, who also happens to be the richest Asian at present, controls Reliance Industries and is the owner of the world’s largest oil refining complex.
Tesla’s Elon Musk continues to be the richest man in the world with a net worth of $273 billion, followed by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos in the second spot with $188 billion net worth.
In February, both Mukesh Ambani and Gautam Adani surpassed Mark Zuckerberg on Forbes’ list of real-time billionaires after he lost $29 billion in net worth as Facebook owner Meta Platforms Inc’s stock marked a record one-day plunge following a disappointing earnings forecast that shook the global tech landscape.
