Gautam Adani Net Worth: The year 2022 is said to be very lucky for Adani Group chief Gautam Adani. Now a new record has been accumulated on his name. Adani has become the first Indian and Asian person to enter the top-3 list of the world's richest people.
Adani Group Chairman Gautam Adani is the richest person in India and Asia. A few years ago, although he was not familiar to many in the world, now Gautam Adani was a household name as the richest man in Asia. We see Adani Group stepping into many different areas for its business expansion.
Gautam Adani has set a new record in terms of net worth, surpassing Reliance Group chief Mukesh Ambani. According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Gautam Adani has become the third richest person in the world. Not only this, Adani has become the first Asian businessman to enter the top-3 list of the world's richest people.
Only Musk and Bezos are ahead of Adani
According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Adani has surpassed Louis Vuitton's CEO and Chairman Bernard Arnault. According to the index, Adani's net worth currently stands at $137.4 billion. Now ahead of Adani are Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. Musk's net worth is currently $251 billion, while Bezos' net worth is $153 billion.
2022 is a lucky year for Adani
Adani's wealth has grown rapidly in recent times. Even after the end of the sell-off period in the global stock market, Adani's wealth has been steadily increasing. According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Adani is the only person on the list of the top 10 richest people whose wealth has increased in the last 24 hours. Adani's net worth increased by $1.2 billion during this period. This year has been very lucky for Adani. Adani's assets have grown by $60.9 billion since January.
Last month, Gautam Adani overtook Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates to the fourth spot before overtaking Bernard Arnault. Last month, Gates donated a large portion of his fortune to philanthropy, reducing his wealth significantly in the blink of an eye. On the other hand, Adani's companies have consistently outperformed the stock market, increasing their net worth. Now Gates' wealth has reached 117 billion dollars.
Increase in wealth in April
2022 has been a very good year for Adani. No other billionaire can even come close to the speed at which Adani's wealth has grown this year. This year his net worth has increased to more than 60 billion dollars, which is at least five times more than others. In February this year, Adani overtook Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani to become the richest person in India and Asia. Adani's net worth crossed the $100 billion mark for the first time in April this year.
