Asia's Richest Millennials

While it's no secret that Asia is the world's millionaire factory, what may not be as well known is just how young the region's ultra-moneyed are.

Asia's millennials rich list, compiled by wealth research firm Wealth-X, reveals the 10 wealthiest individuals in the region aged between 18 and 34. The term millennials refers to "80s and 90s babies", or to be exact, those born between 1981 to 1997, as defined by think tank Pew Research Center.

Unsurprisingly, Chinese dominate the ranking, accounting for nine out of the top 10. Those who feature on the ranking, however, have made their wealth in very different ways, from jewelry to real estate to technology.

Some are self-made and others the lucky inheritors of family fortunes, but one thing's for certain: there's some serious dosh floating around the region. Click ahead to find out who these young and incredibly cashed up individuals are.
