New Delhi: Billionaire industrialist Gautam Adani and his family's net worth of $123.2 billion has made him the fifth-richest individual in the world, pushing aside Wall Street Investor Warren Buffett.
The Latest Forbes' Real-Time Billionaires List said that Adani Group, that runs a slew of businesses ranging from airports to ports and power generation to distribution, crossed Buffet's $121.7 billion on Monday.
Last week at a function, Adani shared his dream of seeing the country to become a $30-trillion economy by 20250 when no one in the country will sleep with an empty stomach.
The Forbes list is currently headed by SpaceX and Tesla chief Elon Musk, whose net worth stands at $269.7 billion. He is followed by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos (net worth $170.2 billion), LVMH owner Bernard Arnault and family (net worth $166.8 billion) and Microsoft founder Bill Gates (net worth $130.2 billion), the data showed.
Reliance Industries Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani is placed in eighth place with a net worth of $104.2 billion, behind Larry Ellison (net worth $107.6 billion).
