Top 5 youngest billionaires under the age of 30

Making money is never simple, and some people are just lucky enough to be born into it.

The ages of the world's top five youngest billionaires range from 19 to 27.


The list can be found below.


Kevin David Lehman

Despite his young age, David, a German immigrant, has amassed a fortune of $3.3 billion.


After legally inheriting his father's 50% ownership in German drugstore chain drogerie markt at the age of 18, Lehmann became the world's youngest billionaire.


2. Alexandra Andresen


Alexander, a 24-year-old Norwegian billionaire, is worth $1.4 billion.


Johan Andresen, Alexander's father, sold his Ford Holdings (Norway's largest firm) shares in 2007 and passed them to his daughters. The Andresens inherited a considerable fortune from their great, great, great grandpa, who created Norway's largest cigarette firm.


3. Wang Zelong

Wang, a 24-year-old Chinese billionaire, is worth $1.5 billion.


A $1.3 billion interest in CNNC Hua Yuan Titanium Dioxide Co. was left to Wang when his father died (a chemical company that produces titanium dioxide pigment). Shenzhen Stock Exchange is where the company's shares are traded.


4. Austin Russel


Austin, a 26-year-old American businessman, is worth $2.4 billion.


Luminar Technologies, his startup, makes sensors and other self-driving car technology. As a result of his sensors, self-driving cars can now detect moving things by bouncing laser beams off of them and the environment around them. In terms of dollar wealth, Russel is the world's youngest self-made billionaire at the age of thirty-two.


Gustav Magnar Witze

a 27-year-old German named Witz has a $3 billion fortune.


Witze's father granted him nearly half of the shares in his wildly successful salmon seafood company SalMar ASA in 2013. That's when he became officially wealthy (one of the biggest producers of salmon in the world). His newfound fortune made him the richest man in Norway. When he's not working in the salmon industry, he likes to find new ways to express himself. Because of this, he has several business interests in his native Norway, such as a real professional modeling contract with Next Models Worldwide.
