About Alicia Koplowitz
Alicia Koplowitz is a Spanish business magnate and she has an estimated net worth of $2.5 billion as of March 2013 according to Forbes. Born Alicia Koplowitz y Romero de Juseu on September 12, 1954 in Madrid, Spain, she is the second and youngest daughter next to Esther.
Alicia accumulated her estimated net worth of $2.5 million when she and Esther inherited the construction firm Fomento de Construcciones y Contrata (FCC) from their late father Ernesto Koplowitz Sternberg. The Koplowitz sisters acquired the control of the company in 1989. Alicia sold her stake to Esther for $800 million. It was a wise move for Alicia as her fortune grew while the company was struggling during the financial crisis in Spain.
Alicia Koplowitz has also invested businesses such as steelmaker Acerinox, electric utility Iberdrola, and banking group Banco Sabadell. She also owns a stake in Hospes, a chain of luxury hotels in Spain as well as hotels in Italy and Miami. She has a total of more than $1 billion assets in both Spain and England.
Koplowitz is the seventh richest person in Spain and 589th in the world. She created two foundations with their own unique ways of helping. The Fundación Vida y Esperanza allows children, adolescents, and young adults with social, family, and financial problems to acquire housing, education and work. Fundación Alicia Koplowitz helps Spanish fellows find opportunities to study child psychiatry in England and the U.S. in such places as Columbia University’s Medical Center. With her efforts to promote the study and development of child and adolescent psyciatry, she was named an honorary member of the Spanish Society of Psychiatrist in 2009.
