Indian business tycoon and billionaire, Mukesh Ambani is now the world’s fourth-richest man. The chairman of oil-to-telecom conglomerate Reliance Industries, Mukesh Ambani secured the fourth position in Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
Now only three names featured ahead of Ambani that is, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg respectively. According to the list that shows the ranking of the world’s richest people, Ambani is wealthier than Bernard Arnault, Warren Buffett, Steve Ballmer, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Elon Musk, and more.
Ambani has jumped ten places on the Index since January as shares of his giant surged over 145% from a low of Rs 867.82 in March after the company got Zuckerberg’s Facebook onboard. Ambani’s appearance among the top 5 billionaires is significant for a lot many reasons, mainly because for decades, the world’s five richest comprised a little-changed group dominated by Americans, one or two Europeans and occasionally a Mexican.
