·         89 self-made women billionaires from 16 countries made the list, 13 fewer than last year.

·         22 billionaires dropped off last year’s list, a record, including well-known Chinese actress and entertainment investor Vicky Zhao Wei, 42; 47 saw their wealth shrink or stay the same. This compares with 430 individuals who dropped off the Hurun Global Rich List, released last week in Beijing and Mumbai. China led that list with the largest number of drop offs, with 213.

·         Total wealth US$2 trillion, down 12.5% from last year. Rupert Hoogewerf, chairman and chief researcher at Hurun Report, said: "A drop of more than 20% in the Chinese stock market, combined with a 6% depreciation in the Chinese Yuan were the main reasons for the large number of Chinese who fell off the list."

·         33 women on the list saw their wealth rise, led by entrepreneurs from the food industry: Shu Ping and Li Haiyan, co-founders of Chinese hotpot brand HaiDiLao and Cheng Xue and Li Xuhui, co-founders of soya sauce brand Haitian. Others included Mei Dong from down jacket brand Bosideng, Tory Burch of the eponymous American fashion brand, and Winnie Enevoldsen of Danish jewelry brand Pandora.

·         9 made the list for the first time, led by Fan Hongwei of Hengli Chemical Fibre, who shot straight into the Top 10, followed by Lu Zhongfang of training platform Offcn.

·         With 51 billionaires, China has produced 57% of the world's self-made women billionaires. The US is second with 18, followed by the UK with 6. According to Hurun Global Rich List, China topped the list with 658 billionaires, 74 more than the USA with 584

·         Manufacturing lost six billionaires compared with last year, but still remained the world's biggest source of wealth for self-made women, with 14, followed by real estate (13), retail (11) and tech (11). On the Hurun Global Rich List, tech was top, followed by real estate, investment, manufacturing and retail.

·         Only 5 are 45 or under, down by half from last year. Wu Yan, 38, of Chinese entertainment platform Hakim, was the youngest self-made billionaire, followed by Chen Xiaoying, 43, from express delivery brand Shentong Express, and Tatyana Bakalchuk, 43, from Russian e-commerce platform Wildberries.

·         The average age was 60, 4 years younger than the average age of the Hurun Global Rich List.

·         64% had listed companies, down 5% from last year.

·         13% share their wealth with their spouses, down from 17% last year.

·         Women accounted for 15.5%, up slightly from 15.3% last year, of the Hurun Global Rich. Five years ago, it was only 11%.

·         Hurun Research Institute, the world's largest rich list provider, has released the 9th edition of Hurun Richest Self-Made Women in the World.

 

 

(7 March 2019, Shanghai and Mumbai) The Hurun Research Institute and Mini World today jointly released the Hurun Richest Self-Made Women in the World 2019, a list of the self-made women billionaires in the world. This is the 9th year of the list. Hurun Research recalculated the individual wealth of some of the women, separating their wealth from that of their spouses. Wealth is a snapshot of 31 January 2019, drawn from the recently released Loong Palace·Hurun Global Rich List 2019.

 

“The stories of these 89 self-made women tell the story of women in the modern-day world of business,” said Rupert Hoogewerf, chairman and chief researcher of Hurun Report. “Their spirit of entrepreneurship is an example for many young women looking to become the next Wu Yajun or Oprah Winfrey. Further research needs to be done to understand what it is that has made China such a dominant force for women entrepreneurs. I am delighted to put out the Hurun Richest Self-made Women in the World 2019 together with Mini World.”

 

Eva Wan Yuhua, Founder and Chairlady of Mini World said, “For my first venture, I founded Chinese shampoo brand Bawang, which went on to list in Hong Kong. Mini World is my second venture, a platform for empowering women. Mini World uses IoT technology to link Chinese women with the rest of the world. Through the sharing of global resources and wisdom, through our Global Glamour Women's Business School, we are building a new ecosystem and creating new wealth. This new era has given women unlimited opportunities, and they have created tremendous value for the world. I am proud to partner with Hurun Report, the world’s largest rich list provider, on this list of the Richest Self-made Women in the World, and hope to encourage more women to create more value and wealth for society, and make the world a better place.”

Loong Palace•Hurun Global Rich List 2019

(26 February 2019, Beijing and Mumbai) Hurun Report released the Loong Palace ·Hurun Global Rich List 2019, a ranking of the US-Dollar billionaires in the world. Wealth calculations are a snapshot of 31 January 2019. This is the eight year of the ranking. Loong Palace is a Beijing luxury property developed by HK-listed Shimao. The Loong Palace· Hurun Global Rich List 2019 ranked 2,470 billionaires from 67 countries and from 1,931 companies. For more information on the Loong Palace· Hurun Global Rich List 2019, please visit: http://www.hurun.net/CN/Article/Details?num=0C89B7A101E0



Hurun Richest Women in China 2018

(16 October 2018, Beijing) Hurun Report released the Hurun Richest Women in China 2018. This is the 13th consecutive release of the Hurun Richest Women in China Top 50. For more information on Hurun Richest Women in China 2018, please visit: http://www.hurun.net/CN/Article/Details?num=DB89D5061AE3



Methodology

Wealth valuations are from the Loong Palace· Hurun Global Rich List 2019, released 26 February 2019. Putting together this list of the world’s most successful women in business has been a challenge. For many spouses of billionaires, the shares are owned in the husband’s name, such as Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg, but the donations are done in both spouses’ names, such as the Bill & Melinda Gates, Mark and Priscilla Chan.  For the purpose of this list, we have separated out the wealth of the women.  In the case of Robin Li and Melissa Ma Dongmin of Chinese search engine Baidu, for example, we can see the individual shareholding of Ma Dongmin, so we have valued her independently.  In the case of Peggy and Andrew Cherng, we can see both their names on the shareholdings but are not able to determine their value independently, so we have kept the total wealth and added the spouses’ name.

About Hurun Report Inc.

Nobody Knows China’s Rich Better!

Established in 1999 by British accountant Rupert Hoogewerf, Hurun Report Inc. has grown into a leading research platform based in Shanghai and Mumbai, best-known for its China and India rich lists, and with 150 employees today. Hurun Report Inc. has four main divisions.

 

Hurun Research Institute ‘World’s Largest Rich List Provider’

2019 marks the 20th anniversary of Hurun Report, highlighting the fastest wealth creating period in the history of the world.

 

The Hurun Richest Self-Made Women in the World has been highlighting for over ten years the fact that over 70% of the world’s most successful women in business herald from China, ie Chinese are completely dominant in the world of women in business. This has changed the way the world looks at Chinese women in business.

 

The Hurun China Philanthropy List ranks the most generous individuals in China and is now in its 15th anniversary.  With no inheritance tax, Chinese give much more generously than many have previously understood. 

 

Two recent lists with an impact include the Hurun China Unicorn Index, ranking the most dynamic businesses with a valuation of US$1bn or more in China; and the Hurun Most Successful University Alumni.

 

In India, Hurun Research has launched the Hurun India Rich List for the seventh time last year, and has an active events business there.

 

‘World Authority on the Chinese High Net Worth Individual’

Recent research partners include financial institutions (PingAn, Bank of China, Taikang Life, Minsheng, Citic), local government (Shanghai, Changbaishan) and Global 500 multinationals (Marriott, Country Garden, Agile, Audi, Volvo).

 

Three breakthrough lists this past year: Hurun Good Doctors’ List, a ranking of the 9500 most respected doctors in China, broken down by region and speciality; Hurun Best International Schools List; and Hurun Creative Works Intellectual Property List, in Search of the Harry Potter of China, ranking those online novels with the most valuable IPs.

 

The Hurun Art List ranks the top artists alive today in China for the 12th year and has become a household name amongst artists.

 

Media and Events ‘The Hurun brand gets 200 million views a month in China’

The Hurun brand has become one of the few non-Chinese media brands to become a household name across China.

 

Hurun Media monetizes 1 million views a month in China, through its wechat, weibo, website and legacy magazine.

 

Recent themed events include blockchain, fintech and 30 under 30, with industry-respected awards. We deliver 100+ events a year in China, with 200 entrepreneurs from the Hurun China Rich List attending.

 

Hurun Report kicked off the world's largest Chinese New Year dinner series in Shanghai on January 16, and is going to 8 cities across 4 continents. Toronto on Jan 20, New York Jan 23, LA Jan 25, London Jan 28, Istanbul Jan 29, Luxembourg Jan 31 and ending up in Sydney on Feb 18. Hurun Report’s mission is to create the world's largest platform of China gatekeepers.

 

Investments

Hurun Investments has a portfolio of 20 companies with a market value of US$50 million, with investments into tech, media, design, education as well as a vintage car race and a tailor.

The number "20" is integrated into the Chinese character ‘’ pronounced 'yi', meaning 'friendship', symbolizing how building friendships is at the core of how Hurun Report does business with its partners.
