Indian billionaire Gautam Adani is the third richest person in the world in the Forbes list of billionaires. His net worth rose to $150.8 billion on Wednesday, September 14th. Adani outperformed Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, whose fortune fell by about $10 billion to $150.2 billion after shares in the e-commerce giant plunged 7% in New York.
The difference between Adani and Bezos net worth is so small that their rankings seem about to change again in the future. Elon Musk always dominates the ranking with a net worth of $265.6 billion, while French fashion mogul Bernard Arnault is in second place with $165.3 billion.
