While most college students are drowning in student loans, these two are billionaires – and they haven’t even graduated yet.
Forbes just came out with their annual list of the world’s billionaires, but don’t think they’re all cranky old businessmen. You have to scroll down the list a bit, but clocking in with a net worth of $1.2 billion, there’s two Norwegians to take note of: 19-year-old Alexandra Andresen and her older sister 20-year-old Katharina Andresen. Their father recently gifted them each with a 42% stake in the family investment company, Ferd, ranking them the 1,475th richest people in the world. The family business began as a tobacco company bought by their great-great-great grandfather in 1849, then was a leading cigarette maker for 150 years. The company was sold for $500 million in 2005, and the money then invested in property and hedge funds.
Pretty much, these girls have it made.
But they’re not just sitting poolside and watching their bank accounts grow. Katharina is studying at Amsterdam University College in the Netherlands, while Alexandra has been competing in horseback riding competitions across Europe since graduating high school.
Forget Taylor Swift – I’m trying to be part of these girls’ squad.
