World top Billionaires List : The country’s second richest businessman Gautam Adani has also reached the second number in the ranking of top Asian rich. According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Adani has now reached the 14th position in the list of the world’s rich. Mukesh Ambani is two ranks ahead of him in this list. But in terms of the speed of earning money, Adani has also left behind Ambani.
In the era of Corona epidemic, the pace of earning of Adani’s wealth has been more than that of Ambani. During the Corona period, Adani’s wealth increased by 829 percent while Mukesh Ambani’s wealth increased by 115 percent. In this list of billionaires, as on 1 September 2021, the net worth of Mukesh Ambani is estimated at $ 87.5 billion and the net worth of Gautam Adani is $ 69.9 billion.
Adani’s property fell after negative report
In June this year, Adani had also reached the second position among the top rich in Asia. But then there were reports raising some questions on investments in their companies, after which there was a huge sell-off in their companies. In fact, in some reports, there was talk of freezing the accounts of three Foreign Portfolio Investors (FPIs) who have made huge investments in Adani Group companies by the National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL).
After this news, the share prices of many Adani Group companies started falling, due to which there was a sharp decline in Gautam Adani’s net worth as well. But now once again Adani has come second in Asia and 14th in the world in Bloomberg’s list of billionaires. Mukesh Ambani’s name is recorded in this list as the richest Asian person and the 12th richest businessman in the world.

According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, his net worth has reached $ 200 billion on 1 September 2021. Tesla owner Elon Musk is second with a wealth of $ 199 billion.
