Indian Billionaire Gautam Adani Just Became The Fourth Richest Man In The World

gautam adani became the fourth richest man in the world

The Adnani Group Companies experienced an extensive bull run period, and now chairman Gautam Adani is the fourth richest man in the world, tying with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates! And that’s not the only news we have. Did you know the Indian billionaire added almost two-thirds to his fortune in 2022?

But First, How Did Gautam Adani Become So Rich, So Fast?

When 2021 ended, the Chairman of the Adani Group only had 76.7 billion dollars to his name. What we didn’t expect was how Adani added 48.3 billion dollars to his wealth this year, and if his wealth keeps increasing at the same pace, he might just become the third richest man in the world by next week!

This is almost revolutionary because, as compared to Adani, the other four wealthiest men in the world, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Bernard Arnault, and Bill Gates, were literally all in red, and Arnault was losing the most at 43.7 billion dollars.

The secret to Adani’s success? An extensive bull run period for the Adani Group Companies has simply propelled the chairman blaze past sharks like Warren Buffett, Mukesh Ambani, and even co-founders of Google, Sergey Brin, and Larry Page!

The Bloomberg Billionaires Index reports that Adani’s fortune was calculated to be 125 billion dollars, which is equal to Bill Gates’ wealth. However, this practically happened overnight when Adani’s wealth received a boost worth 6 billion dollars 48 hours ago!

Check out the table below for a quick insight into the net worth story of the world’s richest men!
