Top 10 Richest Women in the World


Coming up with a list of the richest women in the world can be a tricky affair because there are very many rich women, and parameters of measuring wealth may differ greatly. That’s why you may end up with slightly different lists, depending on who has compiled it. Again, whether a given list presents the actual picture is not easily determinable because some women are not keen on disclosing their wealth. Experts mainly rely on publicly available information and what the woman in question is willing to disclose.

Holly Branson

She is the daughter of famous Sir Richard Branson. Holly has a medical degree which she received in 2007; she worked for a year in the neurology department of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Today her medical career is a thing of the past. She is involved in many of her father’s business activities around the world such as listening to South African kids pitch their startup ideas at the Branson Center of Entrepreneurship in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Officially, Holly is listed as the special projects manager at Virgin. She is also on the board of Virgin Unite, an incubator for the many nonprofit startups.

Holly has reported on Richard’s site that she’s expecting twins soon, and therefore you will probably not see her as much at charitable events in this upcoming year.
