The world’s richest man, Bill Gates, has said he won’t be leaving his £70 billion fortune to his children: Jennifer, 20, Rory, 17 and Phoebe, 14 when he dies.
He said instead he plans to leave his fortune to, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which funds health and education projects around the world to help the poorest.
Speaking in an exclusive interview on ‘This Morning‘ UK television show, the world’s richest man, Bill Gates, revealed like never before that his three children understand why he has pledged to leave his £70 billion ($81.7 billion) fortune to charity when he dies.
‘They are never going to be poorly off, our kids will receive a great education and some money so they are never going to be poorly off but they’ll go out and have their own career. It’s not a favour to kids to have them have huge sums of wealth. It distorts anything they might do, creating their own path. This money is dedicated to helping the poorest. They know that, they are proud of that, they go on trips with us to see the work that’s being done.’
