The Hurun Research Institute released, in association with premium baijiu brand Hengchang Shaofang, the Hurun China Rich List 2022, a ranking of the richest individuals in China. The cut-off was CNY 5 billion (equivalent to US$710 million), and wealth calculations are from 15 September 2022. This is the 24th year of the list. View the full list here.

Rupert Hoogewerf, Hurun Report Chairman and Chief Researcher:

“This year has seen the biggest fall in the Hurun China Rich List of the last 24 years with the overall number of individuals down more than 10% and their wealth down by nearly 20%, driven largely by the drop in real estate and healthcare entrepreneurs.  Part of the reason has been a global economy downturn, led by the fallout from the Russia-Ukraine war, a sharp drop in tech prices and the generally slow post-Covid economic recovery, but also at the national level, the continued disruptions to the economy from localised Covid outbreaks. The result? China’s stock market has fallen sharply, with the Hang Seng Index and Shenzhen Component Index falling by more than 20% compared with the same period last year, and the Shanghai Composite Index also falling by more than 10%. However, it is worth noting that although the number of individuals has decreased so much, it is still nearly 50% more than five years ago, four times that of ten years ago, and more than 400 times that of twenty years ago.”
