Ka-ching! Here’s the Richest Millennials on the Planet

There are no prizes for guessing who the richest millennial is, but if you picked Mark Zuckerberg, then you’re right on the money.

The 31-year-old Facebook co-founder is worth a whopping $46.1 billion. Guess you could say that’s a lot of “likes.”

And good luck to him; what he’s done is remarkable.

Among the top five richest millennials, another two have a history with the social media behemoth.

One of them is another Facebook co-founder, Eduardo Saverin, who was portrayed by Andrew Garfield in the 2010 film The Social Network. The 33-year-old Brazilian today is worth $5.3 billion, which makes him the fourth richest millennial. He currently lives in Singapore and that’s him pictured below.

Facebook’s third ever employee, 35-year-old Dustin Moskovitz, is the world’s second richest millennial. He’s worth $9.1 billion, still quite a way from Zuckerberg.

But the world’s third richest millennial is a 34-year-old Chinese woman named Yang Huiyan. She’s worth $5.9 billion thanks to her father, who is a property developer in China.

Coming in at number five is 32-year-old American Scott Daniel Duncan, who inherited billions from his father who made a fortune in the energy industry. Duncan is worth around $5 billion.

There are a few more people featured in the above video that is based on a list of 20 that was compiled by wealth consultancy Wealth-X. Eleven from that number live in the U.S., and six are women. Three are from China (including Hong Kong), while another three are from Switzerland.
