Francoise Bettencourt Meyers, French author and heiress to L'Oreal is most likely to be the first woman to reach $100 billion net worth.

Some key hooks for your readers:

  • Francoise Bettencourt Meyers is likely to be the first woman to reach the $100 billion mark with a predicted nine years until she joins the club
  • American novelist and philanthropist Mackenzie Bezos is likely to make the $100 billion mark at 65 years old in just 16 years time
  • 4 of the world’s wealthiest women are not likely to reach $100 billion until they are over 100 years old - with Laurene Powell Jobs predicted to reach this milestone at 110 years of age.
  • Yang Huiyan is the youngest woman on the list (38 years old) and is likely to join the cent-billion club when she’s 62 years old as the majority shareholder of Country Garden
  • Gina Rinehart currently has the lowest net worth on the list but is expected to make the $100 billion mark in just 20 years 

The list of women on the road to $100 billion:

Name Company Net worth (billion) Years to 100 billion Age now Age at 100 billion
Francoise Bettencourt Meyers L'Oreal 53.9 9 66 75
Mackenzie Bezos Amazon 39.1 16 49 65
Gina Rinehart Hancock Prospecting 15.5 20 65 85
Yang Huiyan Country Garden Holdings 22.8 24 38 62
Jacqueline Mars Mars, Inc. 38.8 28 80 108

Whichever way these women made their fortune, it’s safe to say there’s room at the top of the wealthiest list for more powerful females, so who will be the first to make it into the 'centi-billionaire' club?
