2023 has started on shaky ground for billionaire Gautam Adani
Mumbai: Where this year Gautam Adani was expected to become the world’s biggest rich man and now he is finding it difficult to remain in the top-10 list. After the report of American investment research firm and short seller Hindenburg, Adani Group Stock fell in such a way that it brought Gautam Adani from number four to seventh in the list of top-10 billionaires. Adani’s assets decreased by $ 20.8 billion to $ 92.7 billion in a single day. If the dark shadow of this report falls on the stocks of Adani Group on Monday also, then Gautam Adani will be out of the list of top-10 rich of the world.
Adani is at number seven in the Bloomberg Billionaire Index. Larry Page is behind him at the eighth position. His assets are 92 billion dollars. At the 9th position is Shwab Volmer. His assets are $ 88.7 billion. If Adani Group’s shares fall more than 5 percent on Monday, Gautam Adani’s wealth will come down to around $ 88 billion. In such a situation, he will come in 10th place or even out of top-10. Because, the wealth of Sergey Brin, who is at number 10, is also $ 88.4 billion.
Only Mukesh Ambani and Gautam Adani’s wealth had increased in the list of top-10 rich of the world last year. Adani was also number one in earning that year. This year, Mukesh Ambani has moved out of the top-10 billionaires of the Bloomberg Billionaire Index to the 13th position. He now has assets worth only $81.3 billion.
