This is the 10th year of the list. Wealth is a snapshot of 31 January 2020, drawn from the recently released Shimao Shenkong International Center·Hurun Global Rich List 2020.

 

Rupert Hoogewerf, chairman and chief researcher of Hurun Report, said, “The women on the Hurun Richest Self-Made Women in the World 2020 are the most successful women in business in the world. Their stories deserve to be shared and studied.  What is it that makes them successful?  How did they do it? I hope this list can inspire more women to become entrepreneurs.”

 

“China dominates yet again, with 9 of the Top 10, and 61% of the list, well above its 20% of the world’s population. There are, however, worryingly few young women entrepreneurs in the world.  In the recent Hurun Richest Under 40s in the World, there were only 2 women, with the other fifty all men.”

Reference Information

 

Hurun Richest Women in China 2019

(16 October 2019, Beijing) Hurun Report released the Hurun Richest Women in China 2019. This was the 14th consecutive release of the Hurun Richest Women in China Top 50. For more information on Hurun Richest Women in China 2019, please visit: https://www.hurun.net/CN/Article/Details?num=8B3255858882

 

 

Methodology

Wealth valuations are from the Shimao Shenkong International Center·Hurun Global Rich List 2020, released 26 February 2020. 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: Bill & Melinda Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan.  For the purpose of this list, we have separated out the wealth of the women.  In the case of Robin Li Yanhong 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 assumed they own 50% each.

About Hurun Report Inc.

Promoting Entrepreneurship through Quality Lists and Research

Hurun Report generated 300 million views globally every month last year, through putting out quality lists and research.

Established in 1999, 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 Research Institute ‘World’s Largest Rich List Provider’

These past twenty years have seen the fastest wealth creating period in the history of the world.

Other lists Hurun puts out include: 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 300 million views a month in China’

The Hurun brand has become one of the few media brands to become a household name across China and India.

Hurun Media monetizes 2 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 does events across the world.  In the last year, Hurun Report has held events in Toronto, New York, LA, London, Paris, Istanbul, Luxembourg, Sydney and Singapore. 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.
