Russia’s 2nd Richest Man, Mikhail To Give All His Wealth To Charity

“I’m not a big fan of such public statements, but I can say that I am going to transfer all my money to charity. I don’t plan to transfer any money to my children,” Fridman said,[2] responding to a question from the audience at the Forbes club.

He says giving a young person large amounts of money risks ruining his life. He also doesn’t want his children to participate in his Alfa Group business.[7]

Another reason for that is that he doesn’t want his elder daughter Laura, who is now 22,[1] to become a focus of people with bad intentions.
