Meet Richard Branson, one of the world’s most exciting billionaires. Branson owes his fortune to a conglomerate of businesses bearing the “Virgin” brand name, including Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Galactic.

The son of a barrister and flight attendant, Branson got his start with a mail-order record business some 50 years ago. He primarily lives on a luxe British Virgin Islands retreat, Necker Island, which he bought for $180,000 in 1978.

Branson is getting into the cruise business with Virgin Voyages, expected to take its first passengers in 2020.
