Jennifer Katharine Gates | Net Worth: $20 Million

Source: Microsoft

Jennifer Katharine Gates is the eldest daughter of Microsoft’s head honcho Bill Gates and his wife, Melinda Gates. She was born in 1996 and is currently 25 years old. At present, her reported net worth sits at $20 million, though we expect it to increase as time goes on. Despite being born into privilege, Gates is well aware of her position and how she could use it to make the world just a bit better. Opportunities such as not needing student loans for her studies are not available to many, after all. Like her parents, Gates also participates in their family’s philanthropic efforts through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Outside of business matters, Gates is also very passionate about horseback riding and has been competing since she was a little girl. Her partner, Nayel Nassar, is an equally accomplished equestrian as well.
