Mukesh Ambani inches closer to $100B club💸

Mukesh Ambani, Asia's richest man, is closing in on a select club of people with fortunes over $100 billion after increasing his net worth by $3.7 billion on Friday.

The share price of Ambani's Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) surged 4.15% on Friday after the tycoon doubled down on his clean-energy goals by unveiling plans to boost the production of cheaper green hydrogen.

The Indian tycoon's net worth now stands at $92.60 billion — around $10 billion lesser than Warren Buffett's net worth of $102.6 billion, says the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

In 2007, the Ambani family -- comprising Mukesh and his brother Anil Ambani -- became the first Indian business family to cross the $100 billion mark with their wealth combined.
