Some lucky descendents of the richest people on Earth stand to inherit millions or billions, but not all of the super-rich have heirs to pass their money onto. Here are the world's wealthiest billionaires who don't have children,

$9.5 Billion – Eduardo Saverin


Eduardo Luiz Saverin (born March 19, 1982) is a Brazilian entrepreneur and angel investor. Saverin is one of the co-founders of Facebook. In 2012, he owned 53 million Facebook shares (approximately 2% of all outstanding shares), valued at approximately $2 billion at the time. He also invested in early-stage startups such as Qwiki and Jumio.

Saverin renounced his U.S. citizenship in September 2011, and therefore avoided an estimated $700 million in capital gains taxes; this generated media attention and controversy. Saverin stated that he renounced his citizenship because of his "interest in working and living in Singapore" where he has been since 2009, and denied that he left the U.S. to avoid paying taxes


$9.6 Billion – Jan Koum

$9.8 Billion – Mikhail Prokhorov


Mikhail Dmitrievitch Prokhorov (born 3 May 1965) is a Russian billionaire, politician, and former owner of the Brooklyn Nets. After graduating from the Moscow Finance Institute, he worked in the financial sector and subsequently went on to become one of Russia's leading industrialists, owning major stakes in multinational corporations in the precious metals sector. While he was running Norilsk Nickel, the company became the world's largest producer of nickel and palladium. He is the former chairman of Polyus Gold, Russia's largest gold producer, and the former President of Onexim Group. He resigned both positions to enter politics in June 2011.

In December 2011, Prokhorov capped a year of higher-profile political activity in Russia with the December declaration that he would run as an independent candidate in the 2012 Russian presidential election. He was third in the voting, amassing 7.94% of the total vote. In June 2012, he declared the establishment of the new Russian political party called Civic Platform. As of June 2020, Forbes estimates his wealth at US $11.4 billion.
