How the richest woman in Asia lost 30 billion in two years

It seems almost impossible: losing $28.6 billion in two years. It happened Yang Huiyan, owner of a giant Chinese real estate company. Country Garden Holdings’ stake has fallen by a whopping 94 percent in recent years. The Chinese debt crisis is hitting hard and the wealth of what was once the richest woman in Asia was not spared.

Multi-billionaire loses 94% of his wealth

In recent years, more and more billionaires have lost their fortunes. Consider Sam Bankman-Fried, the former CEO of defunct crypto exchange FTX. He even lost his entire $16 billion fortune within 24 hours. The best man is now waiting behind bars for his trial.

Yang Huiyan lost even more: $28.6 billion to be exact. She is the owner of China’s Country Garden Holding. The company was not long ago the largest real estate developer in China. Even larger than the well-known Evergrande, which recently filed for bankruptcy.

Chinese real estate market in a bind: is the next bankruptcy imminent?

But Country Garden Holding also has big problems due to sky-high debts. Whether the company can pay it off remains to be seen. With 3 million employees and billions in debt, interest rates are high. The company has already missed two payments and has until early September to pay off its debt.

The company is staying afloat for the time being. However, Yang Huiyan’s company has to pull out all the stops because bankruptcy is imminent. Yang Huiyan, who inherited the company from her father, has seen her wealth dwindle in recent years. Her net worth is still estimated to be over $4 billion.
