Country: Norway Company: Ferd AS Net Worth: $ 1.6 Billion.
Alexandra Andresen was only 19 when she broke the record to become the world’s youngest billionaire. She received most of her fortune through the inheritance of almost half of her father’s company, Ferd AS, several years earlier. Another large portion of the company was given to her sister Katharina. Andresen took the money and turned it into a business empire.
She also did some side work as a fashion model, which couldn’t have hurt. The money and fame, however, did not go to Andersen’s head. She reportedly still drives used cars and opts to save her earnings instead of wildly spending them on an extravagant lifestyle. This makes her one of the more down-to-earth and humble billionaires on our list.
