UPDATED: Top 10 richest women in the world 2024

For the fourth consecutive year, Françoise Bettencourt Meyers, heiress to the L’Oréal fortune, holds the title of the world’s richest woman in 2024.

Meyers experienced a significant increase in her fortune over the past 12 months, with her net worth climbing to $99.5 billion, marking the largest gain among women on the 2024 list. However, she falls short of joining the esteemed $100 billion club.

This year’s Forbes’ World Billionaires list shows that women are richer than ever before, with their representation increasing gradually as 369 out of 2,781 world billionaires, accounting for 13.3%, are women.

This marks an increase from 337 in 2023 when women comprised 12.8% of the list. These women possess a net worth of nearly $1.8 trillion, representing a growth of approximately $240 billion compared to the previous year.
