Forbes list: these are the 10 richest billionaires in 2021

Business magazine Forbes publishes the 10 richest multimillionaires in 2021

Every 17 hours someone joins the list of billionaires, this is the conclusion of the business magazine “Forbes”. That year 493 names were added to the list of people worth more than $ 1 billion, including 210 from China and Hong Kong and 98 from the United States. Some of them make it thanks to inheritances received from other billionaires, but many of them are "self-made," that is, they managed to amass their own fortunes.

These women entrepreneurs are among the richest of the rich, according to Forbes

One of the most recent examples is Whitney Wolfe, the founder of Bumble, who became the world's youngest female billionaire. Similarly, Kim Kardashian made the list with a fortune of just under $ 1 billion, seeing significant growth from last year, thanks in part to the sale of KKW Beauty to Coty. However, it is still a long way from being in the top 10.

On the other hand, Kardashian's sister Kylie Jenner, who was considered a billionaire last year, actually has a net worth of $ 700 million, which is not enough to get on the list. She made the list in 2020 but was proven to have documented misleading numbers. (Also interesting: These are the 15 richest people in the fashion industry)
