The salmon heir is the richest among the young for the second year in a row. The Ferd sisters take second and third place.
Salmon heir Gustav Magnar Witzøe (born 1993) tops the list for the second year in a row, with a fortune of 19.6 billion in 2020. He is also Norway’s second richest, behind Kjell Inge Røkke.
The podium is filled by Ferd sisters Katharina Andresen (born 1995) in second place and Alexandra Andresen (born 1996) in third place. They were both listed with a fortune of around 5.6 billion in 2020.
Both are also among Norway’s 10 richest in 2020.
The Andresen family has long been among Norway’s richest. Through the investment company Ferd, the sisters and father Johan H. Andresen own sports brands such as Swix, Ulvang and Helsport, and the building materials company Mestergruppen. Ferd is also involved in several real estate projects.
A clear trend is that the country’s richest have significantly lower wealth in 2020 compared with 2019. This may be due to a tax move by the Solberg government, which increased the valuation discount on shares.
The Norgesgruppen heirs have moved up the list, and the Johannson family’s young people have increased their wealth sharply from 2019 to 2020.
Peder Oskar Johannson (born 1999), Karl Edvard Johannson (born 1996) and Finn Hartvig Johannson (born 1994) all had around 2.2 billion in wealth in 2020, against just under 560 million in 2019. The three take fourth-, respectively. fifth and sixth place among those under 30 years.
Knut Fredrik Natvig Aspelin (born 1993) is with a fortune of around 1.2 billion the seventh richest under 30 years in this country.
