While the turmoil in global markets in the first three months of 2022 has plunged the net worth of many wealthy individuals, for Indian industrialist Gautam Adani it has been the encore of the dream run he saw in the same period last year.
At the end of the first quarter of 2021, Gautam Adani made more wealth than any other individual on the planet surpassing the likes of Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Elon Musk of Tesla, and Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway.
The Gujarat-born industrialist has seen a similar performance so far this year as his net worth has soared by $18.4 billion to $95 billion, the highest among Indians and the second-highest in the world, according to the latest data compiled by Bloomberg Billionaires’ Index.
The only person to make more wealth than Gautam Adani so far in 2022, is the famed investor Warren Buffett. Buffett’s net worth has swelled $21.1 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires’ Index.
