(28 February 2013, Beijing, China) Hurun Report today released the Hurun Global Rich List 2013, a ranking of the 1453 US dollar billionaires currently in the world.  Wealth calculations are a snapshot of 17 January 2013.  This is the first time that Hurun Report has released a ranking of the dollar billionaires in the world, the so-called ‘Nine-Zero Club’, and follows on from a ranking last year of the ‘Ten-Zero Club’, the 83 individuals with US$10 billion.

 

The Hurun Global Rich List 2013 is sponsored by luxury property development Agile Property Hainan Clearwater Bay in China’s Hainan Island.

 

 

The List at a glance

 

On the 2013 list, Hurun Report has ranked 1453 individuals with personal wealth of US$1 billion or more.

 

Asia was home to the highest number of billionaires this year with most of them operating in real estate sector.  The total wealth of the 1453 billionaires amounted to a staggering US$5.5 trillion, the equivalent of China’s GDP.

 

The average age is 63. One in ten is female.

 

This past year has seen a rebound in the wealth of private sector.  Stock markets in the US have risen and the US dollar has got stronger, rising against the Brazilian Real by 19%, Indian Rupee by 12% and Japanese Yen by 6%, making it harder for locals to make the cut-off.

 

The Hurun Global Top Ten grew by 26% on average.

 

The so-called ‘Ten-Zero Club’ – individuals with US$10bn – grew by 25 individuals to 108 billionaires.

 

Rupert Hoogewerf, Chairman and Chief Researcher of Hurun Report, said, “For every billionaire that Hurun Report has found, I estimate we have missed at least two, meaning that today there are probably 4000 dollar billionaires in the world.”

 

China’s entrepreneurs want to see the global context of their recent success.  This is why Hurun Report, a media headquartered in Shanghai, China, has set out on this quest to track down and rank the world’s billionaires.”

 

 

Top 10 - Hurun Global Rich List.  Male, American, over 70…but self-made

 

The Hurun Global Rich List 2013 shows that being male, American and over 60 makes you the right candidate to be among the world’s very richest individuals, however, be prepared to make your fortune yourself. Seven of the top 10 on the Hurun Global Rich List are self-made. Five are from the US, three are Europeans, one is South American and one Chinese,

 

The average age of the Top 10 is 74, eleven years older than for the whole list.

Methodology

The Hurun Global Rich Listis a snapshot of wealth on 17 January 2013.

 

Valuing the wealth of China’s richest is as much an art as it is a science.  We have missed some people, but we believe the Hurun Global Rich List is the most serious attempt to identify the world’s top entrepreneurs and to measure their holdings.  Our team of researchers has traveled the length and breadth of the world’s financial centres cross-checking information with business leaders, industry experts, journalists, bankers, and regulators, as well as previous years’ databases. For non-listed companies our valuation was based on a comparison with their listed equivalents using prevailing industry Price/Earning ratios.

 

Hurun Report would like to thank Anas Rahman Junaid of GyanMagnus Associates, Hurun Report’s chief global rich list research partner.

 

 

About Hurun Report Inc.

Nobody Knows China’s Rich Better!

Established as a research unit in 1999 by British accountant Rupert Hoogewerf, Hurun Report Inc. has grown into a leading luxury publishing group based in Shanghai, China. Hurun Report Inc. has a stable of four luxury magazines, the Hurun Research Institute and an active business events division targeting China’s entrepreneurs and high net worth individuals. 

 

The flagship Hurun Report magazine is published monthly and reaches the households of 110,000 proven wealthy Chinese individuals and their advisers. Hurun Report is best known for its annual Hurun China Rich List, widely considered the bible of wealth and de-facto Who’s Who of Chinese business.

 

Hurun Report Inc. also publishesHorse & Polo, The Schools Guide Series and Wings & Water.

Horse & Polo provides in-depth coverage about horse related issues including features on Polo, Dressage, Horse Racing, Bloodstock as well as Dogs and Croquet. The magazine is designed to be the glamorous companion for wealthy Chinese with a passion for horses.

 

The Schools Guide Series explains the respective education systems of various destinations such as the UK, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, Switzerland and Singapore, issues parents need to take into consideration when making the transition from the Chinese system, and lists the top preparatory, secondary and undergraduate schools.

 

Wings & Water is for the so-called lion kings of China; those individuals who lead industry and shape opinions. It addresses the needs of those entrepreneurs looking to purchase a jet or yacht, as well as setting out how to maintain these big and costly machines.
