The Top 20 Richest Billionaires in Asia – Find out if Singapore Made the List


Just ask anyone to think of the world’s richest people, and the United States of America immediately pops to mind.

However, Asia is slowly catching up with its western counterparts in terms of the number of people making the Forbes Billionaires List.

How much do you know about Asia’s super-rich?

And did Singapore make the list?

The Grand Tally

 

It appears that Singapore failed to make the list of the top 20 wealthiest individuals in Asia this time.

The richest men in Singapore, property brothers Robert and Philip Ng, were just $1.2 billion shy of making the list.

It’s unsurprising that the list is dominated by economic powerhouses like Hong Kong, China and India.

Here’s the final tally of the number of people that made it to the list.

 

#1 Hong Kong (6 Entries)

#2 China (4 Entries)

#2 India (4 Entries)

#4 Japan (2 Entries)

#4 Saudi Arabia (2 Entries)

#6 Thailand (1 Entry)

#6 Philippines (1 Entry)
