Greek woman Vicky Safra ranks 339 in the list of the richest inhabitants of the planet according to Forbes, but prefers to be in the shadow of everyone’s attention. Her fortune is estimated at US $ 7.8 billion.
In 1969, Vicki married Joseph Safra and lived with him in Brazil for several decades. Her husband is the richest Brazilian citizen and the richest banker in the world. He owned banks on three continents and the famous Gherkin Tower in the British capital. In this marriage, 4 children were born, who gave Joseph and Vicki 14 grandchildren. In recent years, the family has lived in Switzerland.
In December last year, Joseph passed away, at that time he was 52nd on the Forbes list. A myriad fortune of almost $ 8 billion was inherited by a Greek widow, Vicki Safra. Joseph and Vicki’s four adult children inherited a portion of their father’s assets and share a fortune of approximately $ 7.1 billion, while the family’s total fortune is estimated at $ 22.8 billion.
The name of Vicki Safra does not flicker in the gossip reports, she does not like fame and excessive attention to herself. She considers her family, charity work and art, which she loves immensely, to be her priorities in life. And of course, she, together with the children, continues their joint business with her husband Safra Group.
Not much is known about the life of this family, despite the huge fortune. Simplicity was at the core of their lives, and the Vicky and Joseph Safra Charitable Foundation is renowned for its large donations to the arts, education and hospitals.
