Is Gautam Ambani richer than Elon Musk?
The answer depends on how you define rich.
Musk is still the richest man in the world, but Adani is second only to Musk in Asia.
The Adani Group consists of companies in thermal energy, coal, and ports.
Reliance Industries, which Ambani controls, is the world’s largest oil refining complex.
Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, is still the richest man in the world, while Amazon’s Jeff Bezos is the second richest man in the world.
Gautam Adani is India’s richest man
With a net worth of $88.5 billion, Gautam Adani has surpassed Mukesh Ambani as the richest man in Asia.
With an estimated $12 billion boost to his fortune this year, he is the world’s richest man.
His Adani Group, a multinational conglomerate with interests in renewable energy and ports in India, also has a stake in Mumbai’s international airport and controls Mundra port.
He is Asia’s, second-richest man
Indian business magnate Gautam Adani has overtaken Zong Shanshan as Asia’s second-richest man. With a net worth of $66.5 billion, Adani now follows behind his Indian competitor, Reliance Industries Limited Chairman Mukesh Ambani.
Both billionaires came in ahead of each other in February. However, Ambani remains Asia’s richest man.
He is the world’s biggest gainer in wealth
During the last year, Gautam Adani has added $49 billion to his net worth, making him the second-richest man in the world.
This makes him richer than the top three global billionaires, Mukesh Ambani of Reliance Industries, the world’s largest oil refining company, and Adani, who runs the ports-to-energy conglomerate Adani Group.
Ambani’s wealth increased by 24 percent year on year, while Adani’s wealth grew by 153 percent – an 1830 percent increase in ten years.
He has a net worth of $100 billion
Indian billionaire Gautam Adani has become the richest person in Asia, surpassing Mukesh Ambani, who is ranked ninth on the list.
However, it can be difficult to determine the exact value of the richest people in the world.
Adani, who heads a group of companies in the energy, mining, real estate, and agriculture sectors, has a net worth of $100 billion.
He is less than 2% from becoming the richest person in history
Gautam Adani, the billionaire Indian, made his fortune in the coal industry but has since diversified his interests into data centers, airports, and defense.
This pivot is rewarding investors, who are betting on Adani’s strategic thinking. Here’s what you need to know about Adani. In short: he’s less than 2% away from becoming the richest person in history.
