Imagine working so hard in a company and earning $3700 per month, while on the other hand, there are people like ALICE WALTON who do nothing and are making more than $7000 in a minute. The truth is no one can get rich by working 9-5. You can work your fingers to the bone, yet you would not come close to the wealth of ALICE WALTON. Yes, you heard us right. She is one of the richest women in the world. But wait for a second; instead of jumping to conclusions, allow us to remind you that she inherited her wealth from her father, the founder of Walmart, Sam Walton. Many women in the world are considered the richest women in the world. And for that, we have organized a list of the top 10 richest women in the world. So, without wasting your time any further, let’s get into it.
10: Gina Rinehart: Gina Rinehart is the richest woman in Australia, and she has built her wealth on iron ore. Yes, you heard it right. The daughter of high profile iron-ore explorer Lang Hancock, Rinehart rebuilt her late father’s financially distressed company, Hancock Prospecting. And to be very honest, she has worked very hard for it. I mean, if we look at her real-time net worth, it is $17.2 Billion. It is incredible, isn’t it? Plus, her fortune’s most significant piece comes from the Roy Hill mining project, which started shipments to Asia in 2015. However, things did not go well during last year due to the world pandemic, and her fortune declined by $2 billion in the past year.
9: Zhong Huijuan: She is considered the world’s richest self-made female billionaire. She was an ordinary chemistry teacher who made her fortune in pharmaceuticals. Zhong Huijuan is the founder and chairperson of Chinese drug maker Hansoh Pharmaceutical. Her company’s drugs are used to treat central nervous system diseases, diabetes, infections, and cancer. However, during last year her stock rose 10% when coronavirus was prevalent in her own country. If we talk about her personal life, she is married to Sun Piaoyang, the billionaire chairman of Jiangsu Hengrui Medicine. Her real-time net worth is $22.6B.
8: Powell Jobs: If you are an Apple user, then you must have recognized this woman from her name. Laurene Powell Jobs is the widow of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, and she inherited billions of dollars of stock in Apple and Disney from her late husband. However, her fortune is down $2.2 billion from last year due to a decline in Disney’s share price. And we all know it’s because of that pandemic, which hit the whole wide world at the beginning of 2020. Besides, back in 2017, she bought a minority stake in the parent of the NBA’s Washington Wizards and the National Hockey League’s Washington Capitals.
7: Susanne Klatten: Her real-time net worth is at $25.9B as of January 2021. If we talk about her source of income, it’s her shares in BMW and pharmaceuticals. She owns 19.2% of automaker BMW; her brother, Stefan Quandt, owns 23.7%, which is fantastic. However, her sales slowed down amid the coronavirus pandemic, and BMW’s stock fell 24% in the first half of March. But that’s not all; she is also the sole owner and deputy chairman of Altana, a pharmaceutical and specialty chemicals corporation. And it pulls more than $2.5 billion in annual sales. She is like a true businesswoman who is making her wealth rapidly.
6: Yang Huiyan: She is a 38-year-old woman who owns 57% and sits on the board of Hong Kong-listed real estate developer Country Garden, which her father founded and chairs. And she is considered one of the richest women in the world, let alone in her home country China. But that’s not all her; even her younger sister Ziyang also sits on Country Garden’s board. The best thing she did during the pandemic was to feed Chinese medical workers. And for that, she set up automated food serving stations in Wuhan. And ironically, Wuhan was the place where the coronavirus originated. If we talk about her current net worth, then it is $32 Billion.
5: Jacqueline Mars: You all must have eaten M&Ms and Milky Way bars once in your lifetime. Well, you would be shocked to know that Jacqueline Mars and her brother, John, each inherited one-third of the $35 billion (sales) candy company known for M&Ms and Milky Way bars. Shocking, right? But Jacqueline Mars did not sit on the sofa all day. Instead, she worked hard for her company for nearly 20 years and served on the board until 2016. Currently, her son Stephen Badger is chairman of Mars’ board of directors. However, if we talk about her net worth, it is $28.9B, which is pretty impressive.
4: MacKenzie Scott: Imagine being the ex-wife of the world’s richest person alive, Jeff Bezos. MacKenzie inherited her wealth from her ex-husband to whom she was married for 25 years. They divorced in mid-2019. She received 25% of Amazon stacks from Jeff Bezos, which was 4% of the company. However, MacKenzie signed the Giving Pledge, promising to give away at least half of her fortune in May 2019. And later, in July 2020, she also announced that she would give away her wealth to nonprofit organizations. In addition to that, she also changed her surname from Bezos to Scott. Currently, her real-time net worth is $55.1 Billion.
3:Julia Koch: Julia Koch is one of the richest women on the planet; she and her children inherited that massive sum of wealth from her husband, who died in August 2019 at the age of 79. Julia Koch met David, her husband, via a blind date in 1991; they ran into each other six months later, began dating, and got married in 1996. But the best thing about her is she did not waste her money on unnecessary things; instead, she donated $10 million to Mount Sinai Medical Center and $10 million to Stanford’s Children’s Hospital to study food allergies. Currently, her real-time net worth is $44.9 Billion.
2:Alice Walton: Alice Walton is the only daughter of Walmart founder Sam Walton. Ironically, her source of income is Walmart, but she does not have a role in Walmart. However, she is helping to lead a program at the Walton family foundation that is supposed to issue $300 million to support charter schools. Besides, in January 2020, she took aim at America’s “broken” healthcare system and unveiled plans to open a holistic health institute in Bentonville.
