Judith Neilson is Australia’s richest woman. She is the first female investor billionaire with a net worth of $1.5 (2018). Judith Neilson holds the 26th position on the Forbes rich list.

Judith Neilson is the ex-wife of billionaire Kerr Neilson and is now a billionaire herself. She holds a stake in international equities manager Platinum Asset Management, founded in 1994 by her former husband.

She’s also reported to have her own property portfolio.

The Zimbabwe-born former graphic designer is founder and director of Sydney’s White Rabbit Gallery, which showcases one of the world’s biggest collections of contemporary Chinese art post-2000. She’s building another Sydney art gallery and a performance space called Phoenix.

It is unclear whether Judith Neilson is self-made, bearing in mind that her ex-husband, Sydney billionaire and investment banker Kerr Neilson, 70, is preparing to hand over a slice of his $3 billion Empire to her in a messy divorce settlement.

Will Judith Neilson disinvest from her exhusbands fund and set up her own investment fund?
