With a net worth of $118 billion, Gautam Adani, the founder, and chairman of the Adani group, a conglomerate with businesses in sectors such as energy, ports, mining, edible oil, and so on, is now the world’s sixth-richest person, thanks to a meteoric rise in the value of the Adani group’s listed stocks. According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, the 59-year-old mogul has surpassed Google’s legendary founders, Larry Page, and Sergey Brin.
From this perspective, it’s worth noting that Adani’s net worth increased by $8.57 billion, or around Rs 65,091 crore, on Monday, thanks to the profit in the share prices of Adani Green Energy, Adani Enterprises, Adani Gas, and Adani Transmission.
On Monday, as India’s main indices closed the day in the red, Adani Group’s stock rose by 16%. Gautam Adani is the world’s largest wealth gainer this year, with an almost $41.6 billion increase in his personal fortune.
