Alexandra Gamlemshaug Andresen (born 23 July 1996)[8] is a Norwegian businesswoman.[citation needed] She became the world's youngest billionaire at age 19 in 2016[9] and held the position of youngest billionaire on Forbes list for three consecutive years.[10] As of March 2019, Andresen is the world's second youngest billionaire and her net worth is estimated at US$ 1.4 billion (£1.048 billion).[11]

Early life[edit]

Andresen is the daughter of Norwegian industrialist Johan H. Andresen, Jr., owner of Ferd AS, who in 2007, transferred ownership stakes of 42.2% each to Alexandra and her sister Katharina (even though their father insists that he won't force his daughters to take part in the family company if they don't want to).[12][1]

She is the great-granddaughter of Johan H. Andresen, great-great granddaughter of Johan Henrik Andresen and Anton Klaveness, and great-great-great granddaughter of Nicolai Andresen. Johan Henrik was the brother of Nicolay August Andresen, and the uncle of Nils August Andresen Butenschøn.[13]

Career[edit]

She has won multiple awards and honors in horse dressage competitions and has modeled several times for an Equestrian clothing company (KingsLand). Despite growing up with the knowledge of her great inheritance, she saves most of her pocket money and only had second-hand cars throughout her teen years, due to her mother's advice.[14]
