Gautam Adani overtakes Mukesh Ambani to become the richest person in Asia: Know about the 5 richest people in the world

Gautam Adani, the Founder and Chairman of the Adani Group, has surpassed Mukesh Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Industries, as the richest person in Asia, as per a report by Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Gautam Adani is ranked 11th in the world with a net worth of $111 billion, while Mukesh Ambani is ranked 12th with a net worth of $109 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, which lists the top 50 richest persons in the world as of June 2.

Ambani had surpassed Adani in the rankings as a result of the Adani Group’s declining valuation following the 2023 Hindenburg report, which claimed the Adani Group was engaged in stock market manipulation and accounting fraud. Nonetheless, Adani has now eclipsed Ambani once more on the lists of the richest persons in Asia and the entire world. This occurred on May 31st, when shares of the Adani Group increased by 14%. The reason is that, according to Jefferies, the Adani Group intends to grow rapidly, investing $90 billion in capital over the course of the next ten years.

Here we list down the top 5 richest people in the world, as per the latest Bloomberg Billionaires Index (as of June 2, 2024).
