Indian business tycoon Gautam Adani has now emerged as the world’s fourth richest man according to Forbes World’s Billionaires List 2022

With a current net worth of $115 billion, Adani’s richness has surpassed even that of Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates

Bill Gates is currently the world’s fifth richest man as per Forbes with a net worth of $104.2 billion

Adani, who is a college dropout, told Forbes in an interview that being an entrepreneur is his dream job as it tests one’s tenacity

Besides being India’s biggest airport operator, Adani also wants to be the world's largest producer of green energy and has hopes to invest upto $70 billion on such projects

Adani first appeared on Forbes’ list of the World’s Billionaires in 2008, with his net worth being $9.3 billion at the time.

The businessman is now behind only three other people in terms of riches- Elon Musk, Bernard Arnault and Jeff Bezos

Meanwhile, Bill Gates slip in the world’s richest list is mostly due to the fact that he has decided to give away a major portion of his wealth to the Gates Foundation.

The Microsoft co-founder has donated nearly $57 billion to the Gates Foundation till date, including a $20 billion gift announced in July 2022
