China Evergrande, one of the largest property conglomerate in China which has been preventing a default of interest payment of its $300 billion debt, has officially defaulted on its debt on missed interest payments and with top credit rating agency Fitch Ratings downgrading Evergrande’s rating. An official default of China Evergrande means the company may not be able to restructure debt at a lower cost, and may trigger a widespread default and short-term pressure of property prices due to asset sale. China Evergrande is founded in 1996 by Hui Ka Yan (Xu Jiayin). In 2009, China Evergrande went public in Hong Kong. At one point, Hui Ka Yan had a personal fortune of more than $30 billion. In 2021, his personal fortune is estimated at around $7 billion to $11 billion.
