Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who topped the list of the world’s richest people, was also hit by US inflation figures. He lost US$ 8.4 billion (roughly Rs. 70,000 crore) in a single day on Tuesday.
Recently, Adani overtook French businessman Bernard Arnault to become the third richest man in the world. Adani’s wealth increased by US$ 1.58 billion on the same day that Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos lost. With this, Adani’s assets have become USD 147 billion.
According to the current Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Elon Musk’s net worth is 256 billion US dollars. Jeff Bezos’ net worth is 150 billion and Adani’s is 147 billion.
Adani’s progress in the list of world’s richest people is fast. He became the richest person in Asia last February. Ambani overtook Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani that day. Two months later in April this year, Adani’s net worth crossed $100 billion. In July, he overtook Microsoft’s Bill Gates to become the world’s fourth-richest person.
On August 30, Adani became the third richest person in the world. He is the first Asian to hold this position. This time, Adani overcame French businessman Bernard Annault.
This year there has been a huge increase in the asset value of Adani. An increase of US$ 70.3 billion was achieved. Increase in oil and natural gas prices also helped Adani to increase its assets. His net worth has increased by 365% in the last two years. Such a jump leads to the conclusion that Adani is likely to be positioned at the second position in the list.
