10 Richest People Under The Age Of 40

Everyone wants to be rich these days. When we dream about being rich, the only thing that comes in our mind is working our backs off and building an income which would eventually lead to a wealth of may be a million dollar in the next 20-30 years. But if we told you there are people out there who have a wealth of more than 1 billion dollar under the age of 40 without working and doing anything to earn it, it will certainly pique your interest. Believe me, it is not a result of some fantasy lottery but just a matter of being born to a wealthy father. You just get born in a rich home and whoa, you are rich before you even learn how to walk. While some rich people are just smart enough to establish companies like Facebook and Google even before they turn 40. Want to know about these lucky and smart people? Well, there are plenty but here are the 10 richest people under the age of 40.
