There's nothing like a young rich list to make you sit back and really reassess your life choices. The Australian Financial Review's annual Young Rich List reveals the 100 wealthiest Aussies under 40 and the top spot this year should come as no surprise if you are an avid rich list watcher. The 37-year-old Atlassian co-founders Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar have taken the number one (and two) spot with a combined wealth of $6.07 billion (yep, billion!), up from $4.6 billion on last year's list.

This year there are nine women on the AFR Young Rich List, which is one more than last year, but still a very poor representation if you ask this writer. We take a look at the top 5 wealthiest men and top 5 wealthiest women on the Young Rich List in the gallery above. The entire Young Rich List will be available on the Australian Financial Review tomorrow morning.
