Adani’s net worth increased by $5.2 billion, or 3.49 percent, as reported by the Forbes Real Time Billionaires List. He barely beats out Jeff Bezos, the creator of Amazon, and French tycoon Bernard Arnault. Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, is still at the top of the list of the wealthy.
Mukesh Ambani, the chairman of Reliance Industries, is the second Indian on the top 10 list and has a net worth of $92.2 billion. The top ten list also includes Bill Gates, Larry Ellison, Warren Buffett, Larry Page, and Sergey Brin as billionaires. As of August 30, Adani had surpassed Louis Vitton CEO Arnault to take third place in the world’s wealth rankings. The inclusion of an Asian among the top three billionaires was a first.
