MEET THE WORLD’S YOUNGEST BILLIONAIRE, ALEXANDRA ANDRESON WHO IS ONLY 21


     21-year-old Alexandra is the youngest billionaire in the world. She was born on 23 July 1997 in Oslo, Norway, where she was primarily raised. 

Alexandra Andreson
    This Norwegian heiress was ranked by Forbes in its 2016 ranking of the richest people on earth, and her net worth as at that year was $1.29 billion.

    Her elder sister, Katharina who is a year older than Alexandra also ranked 2nd youngest billionaire in the world. She’s also worth $1.2 billion. 

     
      In 2007 when Alexandra was 10, her father, Johan Andresen (Owner of Ferd AS) transferred 42.2% of the stock in Ferd to both sisters (even though their father insists that he won’t force any of his daughters to take part in the family company if they don’t want to.) The Andresen family made their money from their tobacco brand, Tiedemanns.

     But Alexandra isn’t just a rich kid. She is a three-time junior Norwegian dressage champion, as an already accomplished horse-rider, she has won multiple awards and honors in horse dressage competitions and hopes to make it to the 2020 Tokyo competition. She has also modeled several times for an Equestrian clothing company (KingsLand). 
     But while she is fully focused on her professional riding career for now, she has not ruled out taking her place in the family company eventually. In a post on Ferd’s website, she wrote “I feel a great responsibility. I want to help develop Ferd and make it even better.” 

     According to Forbes, Ferd started out in 1849 as a tobacco-making company before leaving the industry in 2005, when it sold its share for nearly US$500 million. It is now a holding company with diverse interests, which include real estate and fund.

She told Ferd’s corporate magazine that her parents always taught them to save pocket money and she only drove secondhand cars in her teenage years. She and her sister also attended a local state school in Oslo after returning from stints in British boarding schools. Apart from Alexandra’s horse-riding circuit, she lives a relatively low-key life.

     Alexandra also has a 24-year-old boyfriend though, Joachim Tollefson. But the love of her life is her horse riding which dominates her Instagram account (with over 66k followers) and all her other social-media activity.

      Alexandra’s and her sister’s wealth has become public only because Norway publishes the tax returns of any person over 17. 

On Forbe’s list, Alexandra ranks #1,678 billionaire in the world on the 1,810 strong list along with her sister, Katharina.
