Meet Billionaire College Dropout Gautam Adani Who Just Became The Third Richest Person In The World With A Net Worth Of $137 Billion.
The world’s wealth rankings have a new number 3. Indian billionaire Gautam Adani surpassed luxury goods tycoon Bernard Arnault on Tuesday.
With a net worth of $137 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Adani is the first Asian man to make it into the top three. On the rich list, he is second only to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos (worth $153 billion) and Tesla CEO Elon Musk (worth $251 billion).
This milestone comes just six months after he was named Asia’s richest man. Adani added $60.9 billion to his net worth this year, making him the only member of the top 10 whose net worth won’t drop in 2022.
Adani has come a long way from dropping out of college in his sophomore year at Gujarat University to become a diamond sorter. He is the founder of the Adani Group, which has a huge portfolio of companies across industries including ports, coal and energy.
Adani first became a billionaire in 2008, 20 years after founding his commodity export firm. The 60-year-old overtook Bill Gates on the rich list in July after Gates announced he would donate $20 billion to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Whether the mogul can hold onto his No. 3 spot remains to be seen. Analysts have raised concerns about the amount of debt his company has taken on during its expansion. In addition, rising share prices in companies such as Arnaud’s LVMH or Gates’ Microsoft could see Adani fall out of the top three.
