The second-richest person in the world, Jeff Bezos, has suddenly dropped to third place as Indian business tycoon Gautam Adani swiftly advances up Bloomberg’s Billionaire Index.
With $260 billion in his bank account, Elon Musk, who is still the richest person in the world, may need to be careful. After beginning the year at position 14, Adani has climbed from there to position 2 in less than ten months.
Since white tech entrepreneurs have long dominated Bloomberg’s ranking, a person from Asia has never placed so highly on the list.
Musk’s $260 billion is still much ahead of Adani’s $146.9 billion wealth, which is mostly comprised of the holdings of his enormous Adani Group conglomerate. The organization runs several companies, including ports and coal.
