Jeff Bezos leads the table with $184 billion wealth
With the latest developments, Ambani is richer than Google co-founder Larry Page ($71.6 billion) and Sergey Brin ($69.4 billion), investment legend Warren Buffett ($69.7 billion), and Tesla, SpaceX boss Elon Musk ($68.6 billion).
Meanwhile, ahead of him are Amazon boss Jeff Bezos ($184 billion), Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates ($115 billion), French billionaire Bernard Arnault ($94.5 billion), Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg ($90.8 billion), and Steve Ballmer ($74.6 billion).
The increase in Ambani's wealth comes in the wake of the fund-raising spree of Reliance Industries' telecom-to-digital venture Jio Platforms.
The entity has raised more than $15.6 billion from a number of investors, including Facebook, Qualcomm, and Intel, in the recent months, making RIL debt-free much before promised and zooming the share price of the conglomerate by 25.8% since the beginning of this year.
