Chen Wenpei and his family, who run SCAS Investment Group, topped the list with 4.5 billion yuan (US$710 million). Zhu Linyao, chairman of Huabao International, followed with 3.5 billion yuan (US$549 million). Gao Xuefeng, chairman of Jin Chen Tai Group, rounded out the top three with 3 billion yuan (US$470 million).

The top 20 also include three entrepreneurs in the IT industry. Giant Interactive CEO Shi Yuzhu ranked fourth by cashing out 2.7 billion yuan (US$423 million) and Ma Huateng, CEO of Tencent, Inc., was the 18th with 1.1 billion yuan (US$172 million).
