For the third year in a row, the youngest billionaires in the world are Norwegian heiresses Alexandra and Katharina Andresen, who are 21 and 22 years old, respectively. The sisters’ father, Johan H. Andersen, transferred ownership of their family’s investment company, Ferd, to them in 2007. Forbes only learned of Katharina and Alexandra’s inheritance in 2016, when they first joined the World’s Billionaires List. The sisters each have a $1.4 billion dollar fortune.
