Home > Blossary: China Rich List 2014
China’s top 100 richest are now worth $376 billion, up 19% from a year ago.The quicksilver of the Chinese Internet may even exceed what the Web bestows elsewhere. Especially when an outfit from China enjoys a U.S. stock listing. Look no further than Liu Qiangdong and his Amazon-like online shopping site JD.com. Though it lost money in the first half, it rocketed on the share market after a May IPO. Even with a 22% comedown from its peak, JD.com’s $35 billion valuation is sufficient to lift Liu from 98th on last year’s China Rich List to 10th this time, with $7.1 billion.
