Meet the world's youngest billionaire

How Much Are World's Richest Worth?

At only age 19, Alexandra Andresen is just a normal Norwegian girl who spends her free time riding horses, embracing a vegan lifestyle, helping run her father's company, and being the youngest billionaire in the world. See, she's just like you and me!

Andresen's fortune sits at a solid $1.2B, according to Forbes, and is the result of inheritance.

Johan F. Andresen, Alexandra's father, comes from a long line of family fortune that began in the tobacco business back in 1849.

The family company, Ferd Holdings (which, by the way, is the biggest company in Norway) was sold for $500M in 2005. That money was then invested in different hedge and property funds.

Two years later, Johan Andresen gave 80 percent of his shares in the company to his two daughters. Which is why it makes sense that the second youngest billionaire in the world is none other than Alexandra's sister, Katharina Andresen.

Johan F. Andresen, Alexandra Andresen and Katharina Andresen, co-owners of Ferd Holdings:

This is the first year that the girls appear on the list, since they are both 17 (and being legally required to file for tax returns means that the sisters' financial records are now public record).

Alexandra currently lives in Germany where she dominates international dressage competitions and is training for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
