Young Rich: Tinkler out, but most (like his employees) made a killing

Two of Nathan Tinkler's employees are on this year's BRW Young Rich List because of stock options he gave them, but Tinkler himself didn't make the cut.

It often surprises casual observers that BRW‘s annual “young rich” edition counts the 100 youngest self-made entrepreneurs under 40; in most industries, awards for “rising stars” and the like cut out at 25 or 30. The reason is simple: hardly any businesspeople make a killing by 30. A list cutting off there would be dominated by sports stars and celebrities.

Almost all of BRW‘s 2013 list, unveiled in the magazine’s flagship edition out this morning, are aged between 30 to 40. With its $235 million cut-off, few would make the BRW Rich 200, which charts Australia’s 200 richest people. But it’s a worthwhile exercise seeing where tomorrow’s wealth is likely to come from.
