When we’re young, we all dream that later life will see us succeed, flourish and become rich. Some of us – we’re looking at you, Zuckerberg – achieve this a little faster than others, but new data has just revealed at what age you’re most likely to become a millionaire.
The average age of a first time millionaires is 37, it has been found. In data released by Betway Insider, the average age of a first time billionaire is also revealed: and is a little higher at 51.
So, if you’re not quite there yet, what can you do to make your first million? It was found that the quickest way to get into the two – and even three comma club is by utilising and revolutionising technology. Just look at Jeff Bezos or Elon Musk – both titans of tech.
This is reflected in the findings. Even though only two thirds of the world’s richest individuals have a degree, the most common course favoured by millionaires is engineering. And the University most likely to make you a billionaire? Surprisingly, Harvard.
So, if you’re after a bigger bank balance and you’ve not yet hit 37, then invest in tech, get inventing and maybe head back to uni to grab yourself a useful degree in engineering. And if you’re older than 37? Don’t worry, you can still make it to £1 billion before 51.
