Lia Maria Aguiar Net Worth $1.3 Billion
She’s regarded as the adopted daughter of Amador Aguiar, a dead Brazilian banker. Amador Aguiar founded Bradesco bank that will be regarded as the biggest bank in Brazil. When Amador expired in 1991, it sparked a legal dispute between his three daughters and his recently married wife. He along with his wife, who was 40 years his junior, got married only five months before Amador’s death. The wife requested that his three daughters should undergo DNA testing to establish his paternity to them, as well as to disqualify them from their inheritance. Lina and Lia Aguiar instantaneously became billionaires while their other sister Maria Angela failed to make it to the billionaire’s list. The two’s wealth were significantly higher than Maria Angela’s because they own positions in Bradesco Bank. Most of Amador Aguiar’s wealth was left to his foundation, Bradesco Foundation. The foundation that was founded in 1956 pursues educational causes. It was in 2008 when Lia Maria Aguiar launched her own foundation, the Fundacao Lia Maria Aguiar.
