What You Didn’t Know About the Billionaires Club

Unexpected Facts & Figures From the 2017 Forbes’ List

Did you know that you can reach billionaire status through after-school tutoring? And that the three youngest billionaires on Forbes’ 2017 Billionaires list are all Norwegian? And did you know that only 11% of all 2,043 billionaires are women?

With the new year right around the corner it’s time to start thinking of your New Year’s resolution. One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is to make better financial decisions. Of course, we all want to be rich, but only a few lucky ones manage to rank among the richest of the richest. So, who are the wealthiest people on earth? How did they get there? Where do they live? What did they study and what was their first job?

Market Inspector crunched the numbers from Forbes’ 2017 Billionaires list and created an infographic about the lesser-known facts regarding these billionaires. We collected information on the top five richest countries in the world, the cities with the most billionaires, the youngest billionaires and how they got rich, and the proportion of female billionaires and who some of them are. In addition, we also analysed the Forbes list and uncovered the most unexpected ways of getting rich that you probably never imagined.

Moreover, we combined the data from Forbes’ list with the Aaron Wallis Sales Recruitment report, which provides further insight on the richest people on earth and how they got rich, as well as their first jobs and educational background.
