Meet the 19-year-old girl who recently became the world’s youngest billionaire Inform / N.Y. Daily News

She isn’t even out of her teens, but Alexandra Andresen is already worth more money than we’ll see in several lifetimes.

The 19 year old is the younger daughter of Johan Andresen, owner of Norwegian investment company Ferd. Andresen recently transferred 84 percent of Ferd to Alexandra and her 20-year-old sister Katharina. Her 42 percent stake in the company gives Alexandra a net worth of $1.2 billion.

Alexandra and Katharina Andresen rank No. 1476 on Forbes’ 2016 list of the world’s billionaires.

Despite her staggering wealth, Alexandra lives a relatively low-key life. According to the New York Daily News, she saves all the money she makes and buys cars second-hand at her father’s request. She is also a dressage competitor and an outspoken vegan — and, if her Instagram account is any indication, just a regular teenager in many ways.

Ferd began in 1849 as a tobacco company; it was founded by Alexandra and Katharina’s great-great-great-grandfather. It sold its share in the tobacco industry in 2005 for $500 million.
