China triples the US in billionaire numbers

While China produced 182 new dollar billionaires in the last 12 months, the USA could only produce 59 dollar billionaires despite the record in the stock markets.

The “2020 Hurun Global Rich List”, the Chinese rival of the billionaires list prepared by Forbes, has been announced.

Accordingly, as of January 31, while China, including Taiwan and Hong Kong, created 182 new dollar billionaires in the last 12 months, despite the record in the stock markets, the USA could only create 59 dollar billionaires. While China’s total number of dollar billionaires reached 799 despite trade disputes, this number increased to 629 in the USA.

Thus, the USA ranked second after China, which has 799 dollar billionaires. Third on the list is India, which has 137 dollar billionaires.

Beijing, the capital of China, is the city that has hosted the most dollar billionaires in the world for the 5th consecutive year with 110, while New York is in second place with 98.

Rupert Hoogewerf, founder and chairman of Hurun Global Rich List, stated in his assessment on the subject that China today has more billionaires than the USA and India combined (137 billionaires).

Amazon’s Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos has been at the top of the list of the richest people globally for 3 consecutive years with a fortune of $140 billion.

Bernard Arnault, CEO of LVMH, which has world-famous brands, followed Bezos with $107 billion and ranked second.

Despite the trade disputes with the USA, Ren Zhengfei, the Founder of the Chinese technology company Huawei, attracted attention by increasing his wealth by 7 percent to 3 billion dollars and ranking 903rd on the list.
