L’Oréal founder’s granddaughter is world’s richest woman

New Delhi (TIP)- Francoise Bettencourt Meyers, cosmetics giant L’Oréal’s founder’s granddaughter, is the richest woman in the world – with a net worth of $74.8 billion – according to business publication Forbes’ 2022 list of richest individuals. Meyers’ net worth rose marginally over the past 12 months – up from $73.6 billion in 2021 – and has increased significantly from 2020 – it was $48.9 billion two years ago.

Meyers, 68, leads an impressive list of the top 10 wealthiest women in the world, including Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ ex-wife MacKenzie Scott ($43.6 billion), Australian mining baroness Gina Rinehart ($30.2 billion), and Fidelity Investments CEO Abigail Johnson ($21.2 billion).

India finds mention just outside the top 10, with the Jindal Group’s Savitri Jindal valued at $17.7 billion and Falguni Nayar, the CEO of fashion and retail giants Nykaa, valued at $4.5 billion.
