Yusuf Alekperov listed as richest Russian heir
The son of energy giant Lukoil's President Vagit Alekperov who will eventually inherit at least $17 billion has been again listed as the richest heir by Forbes Russia.
The magazine said that 28-year-old Yusuf Alekperov took the first place just like he did in 2017 with an estimated $14.5 billion fortune.
In March, Alekperov told reporters that he had formalized the transfer of his shares to his heirs through a trust, adding that the children would not be able to break the package, Daily Sabah reported.
In a previous interview with Bloomberg, the Russian billionaire admitted that he was looking for a successor, saying that his son did not fit this role as he considered his father's work too complicated.
