Meet five of the world’s richest self-made women

The world’s richest self-made woman is property investor Wu Yajun, who had a net worth of $14.5 billion as of March 6, according to the real-time Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

However, Ms Wu’s net worth pales in comparison to that of the world’s richest person, Tesla founder Elon Musk, who also happens to be a self-made billionaire and has a personal fortune estimated at $216bn. Ms Fan is placed 150th on the list.

Although their net worth has been affected by recent economic tension, the figures serve to indicate that despite their gains, women are a long way off from gender parity on this front at least, according to Jessica Robinson, founder and managing director of Moxie Future, a Dubai-based company that seeks to empower female investors and help them to grow their wealth through responsible and sustainable investing.
