Here are the 25 richest people under the age of 35 in the world according to Forbes

The American magazine Forbes published its 2019 ranking of the biggest fortunes in the world on Tuesday, March 5, 2019. In its list, Forbes distinguishes between those who are rich thanks to an inheritance and those who made a fortune on their own. 2,153 billionaires are included in this ranking, against 2,208 last year. Their combined fortune is estimated at $ 8,700 billion. The richest person in the world remains Amazon boss Jeff Bezos, whose fortune stands at $ 131 billion, up from $ 112 billion in 2018.

The second step of the podium is occupied by the co-founder of Microsoft Bill Gates with a fortune estimated at 96.5 billion dollars against 90 billion dollars last year and the third by Warren Buffett and his 82.5 billion dollars. Other tech figures, including Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg, Snapchat’s Evan Spiegel and the Colisson brothers, founder of Stripe, are included in this ranking. But this 2019 edition is especially marked by the nomination of Kylie Jenner as the youngest “self-made” (“autodidact”) billionaire of all time by Forbes magazine. The 21-year-old half-sister to reality TV stars Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, made her fortune from her burgeoning cosmetics company founded in 2015.

LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault is the first French to appear in the Forbes ranking, with a fortune estimated at 76 billion dollars (66.9 billion euros). It occupies the fourth place in the world in this ranking.
