Top 10 female billionaires under 40, the youngest is just 27yrs old

Life begins at 40, is a common phrase, yet a few women have shown that life can begin way earlier with billions of dollars in a bank account.

Even more interesting, is the fact that this new generation of female billionaires is redefining what it means to be wealthy, influential and young.

The youngest among them, at only 27 years old, has already secured her place among the world’s financial elite. Although a number of these women are a product of inherited riches, a few have amassed this fortune from scratch.
