7. Hong Kong
No. of billionaires: 64

Hong Kong’s super rich have enjoyed better years. Last year, according to Wealth-X, there were 530 so-called ultra high net worth persons (with a net worth over $30 million) in Hong Kong, compared to just 470 this year. That’s still plenty, but the entire wealth of Hong Kong’s ultra high net worth population dropped a woeful 11.3 per cent over the previous year, too. According to Forbes, Li Ka-shing, pictured, is the richest person in Hong Kong, with a worth of $22 billion.
