These are the world’s 10 richest millennials

·5-min read

Wisdom and wealth are usually words associated with individuals after they have attained a certain age or amassed a certain amount of experiences. 

But that assumption now stands corrected. These millennials (people born between 1981 and 1996, who are currently ages 25 to 40 in 2021) have proved that wealth does not have much to do with how old you are but rather with how enterprising and driven you are. 

As per the Forbes Rich List, 2021, these 10 millennials from various fields emerged the wealthiest in the world, be that whether they inherited from their families or because they earned by virtue of their own hard work and capabilities.

Take a look...
