The Richest Person Of Every Age, From 19 To 60

By on July 16, 2017 in ArticlesBillionaire News

We are obsessed with billionaires here at Celebrity Net Worth. As a result, we got to thinking about the richest people at our respective ages. We put together a list of the richest person for every age from 19 to 60. Take a look at the year you were born. Who is the richest person? Would you trade places with he or she for their billions?

We learned a few things as we put together this list. Though we've limited our list to those born from 1957 to 1996, even so, they are worth a combined $1.4 trillion. Most of the people on our list were either born into their money or married it. Almost all of the American billionaires earned their enormous net worths in technology. The most billionaires come from the United States, Europe, and Asia. Among the Asian billionaires, 80% are self-made.
