Not even 10 percent of the world’s population holds the status of a billionaire. The percentage accounts for only 0.08 percent of the global population (7.8 billion) and the percentage is even less if we compare it country-wise. This is true for India as only 209 people hold this status including NRIs but not all are self-made billionaires. Only 17 Indians got the place in Hurun’s list of self-made wealthy people under 40.
Who tops the list? Check it below.
Kamath brothers from Bengaluru are the youngest billionaires with a total wealth of Rs 24,000 crore. The duo is known for their trading platform Zerodha which is the biggest online platform for traders. With the launch of Zerodha, traders can now easily invest in the stock market at the lowest price rates i.e. Rs 20.
And not just the low fees, the best user experience, free investing options, direct trading, and user’s safety is the reason why Zerodha is popular among users.
