Gautam Adani Regains Title as Asia’s Richest, Surpassing Challenges in a Resurgent 2024

168

Gautam Adani has reclaimed his title as Asia’s wealthiest individual, with a net worth of $97.6 billion, making him the 12th richest globally, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. The founder of the Adani Group experienced a remarkable increase of over $13 billion in the last two days, surpassing Mukesh Ambani.

Adani faced challenges in the past year, including accusations of stock manipulation and fraud, resulting in a significant drop in his wealth. Despite a recovery, it remained below the 2022 peak. Recent positive developments, including a court order to expedite regulatory investigations, have boosted Adani’s stocks, leading to a 7% rise in Adani Enterprises this week.

Adani, a key figure allied with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has a diverse business empire spanning ports, power, media, and clean energy. His journey from diamond trading to building an expansive conglomerate draws parallels to historic business magnates like Rockefeller and Vanderbilt.
