Gautam Adani, the founder and chairperson of the Adani Group, is the 6th richest person in the world. He has surpassed Oracle’s Larry Ellison and Google’s Sergey Brin and Larry Page.
According to Forbes’ Real-Time Billionaires list, Adani and Family’s net worth stands at a whopping $116.3 billion.
This is not the first time Adani has breached the world’s top 10 richest list, but this is the first time he has reached as high as the sixth spot.
It is important to note that with the recent net worth surge, Adani had already overtaken Reliance’s Ambani as the richest person in Asia and India as well.
Ambani, who is the chairperson and managing director of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), continues to be the 10th richest person in the world.
Adani Power’s stock recorded a 120% growth in one month and Adani Wilmar surged more than 87% in the same period.
Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX and chief executive officer (CEO) of Tesla, is the richest person in the world, followed by Amazon’s founder Jeff Bezos.
