Forbes just came out with their annual list of the world’s billionaires. Way down on the list includes the world’s youngest billionaires, 19-year-old Alexandra Andresen, and her 20-year-old sister, Katharina. Both of them come in at a humble $1.2B net worth. How did they get so rich? Well, they each own a 42% stake in the family investment company, Ferd, thanks to a generous gift from their father Johan.
Alexandra doesn’t live a flashy life, though. No, she stays true to her humble beginnings. Once word got out about her new fortune, she said she got around 500 new Facebook friend requests. While she just graduated high school, she has become a successful horseback rider, competing across Europe. If you go through her Instagram account, you will find numerous pictures of her with her horse.
Her sister Katharina dabbled in the family business, which originated as a tobacco company bought by their great-great-great grandfather in 1849. It went on to become the leading cigarette maker for 150 years. So their family has been doing pretty well for a while. Katharina is now studying at Amsterdam University College.
Needless to say, these girls are probably going to be some of the most sought after bachelorettes in the world since they have that B next to their name..
