WHO ARE rich in Scandinavia? List of Nordic dollar billionaires (Forbes’ 2017-edition of the world’s billionaires)

NordenBladet – According to Forbes’ 2017-edition of the world’s billionaires the world’s richest person is still Bill Gates, with a combined wealth of almost $87 billion dollars. Biggest gainer was Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who grew his wealth by almost $3 bn in a year. But who are wealthy in Scandinavia? The list also contains 58 people from the Nordics, more than half of them from Sweden. Meanwhile, Norway, with 14 billionaires, has one more than Finland and Denmark combined.

This year, Sweden saw five new billionaires enter the list, whereas oil & gas billionaire Mika Anttonen (ST1) was Finland’s only new entry. Denmark stayed the same, while Norway had investor Svein Stole and cruise magnate Torstein Hagen enter the list.

The region’s biggest family dynasties are duly represented on the Forbes list. H&M, IKEA and Tetra Laval family members take up more than a third of Swedish spots; elevator giant KONE’s inheritors dominate the Finnish list; and Norwegian investment company Ferd’s inheritors Alexandra and Katharina are the world’s youngest billionaires. The third youngest, 23-year old Gustav Magnar Witzoe, is also Norwegian.

The richest Nordic person on the Forbes list is LEGO Group’s former president and CEO, Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen from Denmark. His estimated net worth is $21,2 billion.
