The Richest Indians

2

Forbes has recently released the list of Billionaires in the world. The total List consists of 793 Billionaires living on this Earth – The economic downturn however has taken a heavy toll – Last year there were total of 1125 billionaires out of which 373 have fallen from grace.

Richest Indians

The world’s richest are also a lot poorer. Their collective net worth is $2.4 trillion, down $2 trillion from a year ago. Their average net worth fell 23% to $3 billion. The last time the average was that low was in 2003.

Bill Gates lost $18 billion but regained his title as the world’s richest man !

Now, how many Indians are in the List – that’s what this list is all about – Out of 793 Billionaires – Only 24 of them are Indian Citizens.

In Last year’s billionaire’s list 4 out of top 10 were Indians. Its not so this time around though. We have only 2 Indians in top 10 Billionaire Rankings. Mukesh Ambani at 7th and Laksmi Mittal at 8th. The stock Market crash has eroded their wealth big time !

Here are the list of 24 Indians that figure in the list of Billionaires:

All the big hype surrounding Mukesh Ambani becoming the richest man in the world seems to have now vanished into thin air :)

  1. […] are some notable changes at the top of the list as compared to last year. Bill Gates is no more the richest man in the world. Mexico’s Carlos Slim Helu beat Bill Gates […]

  2. Madhav Shivpuri says

    Seeing from an investor’s perspective – DLF’s KP Singh went from #8 to #98 in 1 year with a networth change from $30 to $5 Bn. I think it reflects the investors situation as well ! I believe the ones who will stay on the list thru thick and thin are the one’s who will stay longer and reflects the nature of the business they own.

    I have a feeling that next year around real estate will be back from the lows and KP Singh might land above the top 50. What are your predictions?
