Santa Catarina leads the Forbes list of the ten youngest billionaires in the world, which also includes his sister, Dora Voigt de Assis, aged 26, in 9th place. Each of them owns 3.1% of WEG and, as a result, receives millions in dividends.

Livia is 19 years old and is only two months younger than the second place on the list, the Italian Clemente Del Vecchio. According to Forbes, she is currently enrolled at the university where she is studying psychology.

The electrical equipment producer WEG, considered by many a “billionaire factory”, it was co-founded by Livia’s grandfather, Werner Ricardo Voigt, who died in 2016. The company is one of the largest manufacturers of electric motors in the world and exports to more than 135 countries.

Despite being two of the 18 heirs of the WEG group, Livia and her sister Dora have no role in the company’s operations. The co-founder’s youngest granddaughters have a slightly smaller stake than their older cousins ​​Eduardo and Mariana, who each own 3.9% of the company.

Wealth for Younger Pockets

Forbes also highlights that for the first time since 2009, all billionaires under the age of 30 inherited their fortune, which represents a period of “wealth transfer”. The movement is expected as older generations pass away and leave their fortunes to their descendants.

Young self-made billionaires, who created successful businesses, like Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg, are getting older, and similar new profiles are not emerging. Others were unable to maintain their fortune.

The Forbes survey also shows that 60% of young billionaires are European. Other countries that appear on the list are Brazil, South Korea and Hong Kong (all heirs), or Japan and the United States (all self-taught).
