Adani Group’s Chairperson Gautam Adani Becomes 2nd Richest Person in the World-Know His Net Worth!

Adani Group’s Chairperson, industrialist, and Indian billionaire, Gautam Adani, has been added to the list of ‘SECOND RICHEST MAN’ in the World. Mr Adani had overtaken the position after defeating French tycoon Bernard Arnault and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

Gautama Adani is the owner of conglomerate Adani Group, the major port operator in India. The Ahmedabad, India-focused infrastructure group is also India’s largest intimately held thermal coal producer and largest trader of coal.

Net Worth of Top Three Richest Person in the World:

Adani is now just behind Tesla’s Elon Musk, who remains World’s richest man with a $273.5 billion net worth from a quite noticeable period.

According to the list shared by Forbes real tome billionaires, the net worth of Adani stands at $155.7 billion as of September 16, 2022, up by $5.5 billion or virtually 4%.

Arnault is now in the third position, with a net worth totalling $153.5 billion as it drooped by $4.9 billion or 3.08% today. However, Bezos stands in the fourth position with a wealth of $149.7 turned down by $2.3 billion.

The prime focus of the Adani Group is on different sectors – from airports to green energy, it covers everything. The business tycoon has lately been concentrating on choice energy business at a time when the government is endorsing green energy in India.

Adani first overtook Mukesh Ambani as the top richest Asian in February, turned a centibillionaire in April, and beat Microsoft Corp.’s Bill Gates as the World’s fourth-richest tycoon last month.

Adani’s rise to the top levels of the richest people in the World has been nothing lack meteoric. Gautam Adani is a Gujarat-based businessman who struck gold at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic when his sum net worth stood at a small over $6 billion.

In the calendar year 2022, Adani has gained over $70 billion to his wealth, just one among the World’s 10 wealthiest people to have observed his net worth boost this year. He turned a centibillionaire in April and topped Microsoft Corp’s Bill Gates as the World’s fourth-richest person in August.

In June 2022, Gautama Adani pledged to contribute Rs 60,000 crore to aid to mark his 60th birthday. The donations are to be used in education, healthcare, and skill development; his logistics-to-energy corporation had said in a report. It was the largest generous donation in Indian corporate history and joined the ranks of worldwide billionaires like Warren Buffett and Mark Zuckerberg.
