Born with a silver spoon in their mouths. And one day, the silver will turn into gold when these scions succeed the throne and inherit a billionaire’s empire.
Contrary to Hollywood’s portrayal of heirs and heiresses, these successors aren’t loafers but have instead made their mark in society as accomplished individuals. They may live a privileged life, but they work hard and contribute to society in their own ways as well.
The Coverage has compiled a list of 10 heirs who are likely to follow in their parents’ footsteps and become the next billionaires. Check out the gallery to see who are on the list.
10. Wee Teng Wen: 35-year-old son of United Overseas Bank Deputy Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Wee Ee Cheong and grandson of banking tycoon Wee Cho Yaw, who has a net worth of $3.5 billion.
The co-founder of Lo and Behold, a group of trendy establishments, Wee first ventured into the F&B industry when he was 25. He had graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in management, psychology and finance, and started Loof in Odeon Towers in 2005.
Now, he has several restaurants and bars, including The Black Swan, Overeasy, Tanjong Beach Club, The White Rabbit and two Extra Virgin Pizza restaurants under his wing. Wee married artist Dawn Ng mid last year.
