The Wealthiest Billionaires Under 35 Years Old

wealthiest-professionals-under-35 VISUAL CAPITALIST

The first billion is the hardest, according to oil magnate T. Boone Pickens.

And while getting to a net worth of $1 billion at any point in time is a feat, doing it before the age of 35 is even more impressive. Today’s infographic describes the world’s wealthiest billionaires under 35 years old.

Note: the list is based on net worth in 2015, and the ages listed correspond to that time as well.

  1. Mark Zuckerberg: $45.3 billion
  2. Dustin Moskovitz: $9.3 billion
  3. Eduardo Luiz Saverin: $6.3 billion
  4. Yang Huiyan: $5.2 billion
  5. Scott Daniel Duncan: $5 billion
  6. Elizabeth Holmes: $4.5 billion
  7. Nathan Blecharczyk: $3.3 billion
  8. Brian Chesky: $3.3 billion
  9. Joe Gebbia: $3.3 billion
  10. Thomas Persson: $2.9 billion

A Common Thread

To make it onto this list of the wealthiest billionaires under 35, it would appear there are two possible routes.

The first would be to inherit billions from parents that own a big real estate company or retail brand such as H&M. If that option is not available, the alternative is to get involved in the early stages of an insanely successful startup such as Facebook, Airbnb, or Theranos.

The latter route also has the best outlier on the list, with Mark Zuckerberg’s wealth of $45.3 billion topping the combined amount ($43.1 billion) of the remaining nine names.
