Gautam Adani has become world's 4th richest person

The Indian billionaire’s net worth shot up to a whopping $112.5 billion this Thursday. With these figures, he now surpasses Bill Gates -the founder of Microsoft- by a handsome amount of $230 million.

Gautam Adani is the chairman of the Ahmedabad-based Adani group. He has stakes in 6 major publicly traded companies. All six companies come under the banner of Adani Group and deal in green energy, power, ports, gas and others.

He married Priti, who is a dentist by profession. The couple has two sons, named Karan Adani and Jeet Adani. Moreover, Gautam is a Jain Hindu and has made many efforts to help his community.

He started trading in PVC imports and supplied primary polymers to small-scale industries. This led him to establish Adani Exports, now known as Adani Enterprises.

In February 2022, Gautam Adani went on to cross Mukesh Ambani as Asia’s richest person. In May 2022, he bought Ambuja Cements and its subsidiary ACC from Holcim Group.
