Youngest Heirs

Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin have been quoted as possessing matching $25 billion fortunes, placing them 12th in the list of the richest people in the U.S.

Both are now parents to the richest toddlers in the world. In the case of Page’s two children born in 2009 and 2011 and Brin’s son, Benji, also born in 2009, this would make them some of the youngest heirs to their family’s substantial fortunes.

Page’s child has already done nicely for himself it would appear, entering the world a goodly sum more wealthy than at the time of his conception with his father’s wealth having grown by some $3 billion to $15 billion from March to September of 2009 on rising Google shares. According to Forbes, shares only continued to go up in the run to 2013’s all-time high.

Google’s stock price hit its pinnacle in October 2013, making the rich founders even wealthier men. Page and Brin each own about 24 million shares in their company. Their stock fortunes are safe as the founders made $7 billion each on the 2013 run—which means that those youngest heirs may continue to top rich lists for quite some time.

The Google co-founders parent some of the youngest heirs. With the continued growth of Sergey Brin and Larry Page's company, it's likely these toddlers will grow up to be rich adults as well.
