The creator of a dating app that puts women in charge is among the new names to join the ranks of the mega-rich after becoming the world’s youngest female self-made billionaire.

Whitney Wolfe Herd, 31, is worth $1.3 billion (£940 million) having co-founded Bumble, which allows only female users to make the first contact with a man.

She is one of 328 women on the Forbes list of the world’s 2,755 billionaires published yesterday.
