Nearly four months after making history as the first Indian and Asian to become the world’s second richest person, Adani Group chairman Gautam Adani on Tuesday (January 24) slipped to the fourth position on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. The billionaire’s net worth took a nearly $1 billion hit in a day.
With a powerful hold in almost everything – From power to ports, Gautam Adani’s current net worth is $120 billion as of today. If you are wondering how the business tycoon is spending all his money, then you should know he loves investing in properties and cars. He owns a Rolls-Royce, a Ferrari, and several BMW 7 Series sedans. However, that’s not all, in fact, that’s just the basic. Gautam Adani also invested in a personal fleet of private jets.
