Indian billionaire Gautam Adani is currently the worlds second richest person. The only real person richer than him now could be Tesla chief Elon Musk.
The 60-year-old chairman of Adani Group has replaced Bernard Arnault on Forbes REAL-TIME Billionaires List. His net worth now stands at $155.5 billion (12.37 lakh crore rupees) and he could be now the initial Asian to be ranked on the list of top three billionaires globally.
Adanis businesses include coal production, thermal power generation, and infrastructure. His company is Indias largest private port operator and is particularly expanding its airports business.
Adanis wealth has burgeoned on his bets on Indias green energy sector.
It really is likely to further upsurge in the longer term. Adani Groups kitchen essentials firm Adani Wilmar is reportedly searching for local and overseas acquisitions to expand its food operations business.
The business is seeking to acquire brands in staple foods and distribution companies to improve its consumer goods offering and reach, Adani Wilmar CEO and managing director Angshu Mallick told Bloomberg.
