Bill Gates Is World’s Richest Man Again; Where Is India’s Mukesh Ambani On The List?

Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates has officially surpassed Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos as the world’s richest person with a net worth of $110 Bn, according to the latest Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Perhaps unsurprisingly, only one Indian features among the top-50 billionaires. Reliance Industries’ chairman Mukesh Ambani was once again the richest Indian, according to Bloomberg.

Bezos was knocked off his perch as the world’s wealthiest man last month. Bezos was second on the list after topping it in 2018 with a net worth of $160 Bn. 

Ambani’s net worth was $56.7 Bn in the latest list, with the net worth rising by $12.4 Bn in the year to date. Since the last counting, Ambani’s net worth rose by $547 Mn.

France’s Bernard Arnault was third on the list after the two tech behemoths. The Louis Vuitton owner had the highest jump in terms of net worth with a leap of $34.1 Bn in the year.

Here’s the list of World’s Richest Billionaires:-
