Forbes has released it’s annual billionaire list and appearing for the first time is 19 year old Alexandra Andresen making her the world’s youngest billionaire with a net worth of $1.15 billion. That’s around R18 billion. Not bad for a teenager hey.
Andresen is from Norway and her family fortune was made in the tobacco industry, but sold their business in 2005. Her father then created an investment company, Ferd Holdings, and in 2007 transfered 80% of the shares to his two daughters making them both billionaires.
Here’s her sister and pops.
She is also a three-time junior Norwegian champion in dressage riding.
