Singapore's 11 top billionaires

Guess who's Singapore's richest with US$6bn net worth.

According to data obtained from Hurun's Global Rich list, brothers Robert and Philip NG of the Far East Group top the list.

They are followed by Wee Cho Yaw,  the current Chairman of the United Overseas Bank (UOB); Sukanto Tanoto, an Indonesian magnate who relocated to Singapore in the 1990s and  Richard Chandler, a New Zealand born entrepreneur who is based in Singapore.

Altogether, the 11 Singapore-based billionaires  have total wealth of $28.7 billion. 

By country, the US was home to 409 billionaires, comfortably ahead of the 317 from China. Between the US and China, they now have half of all billionaires on the planet.

Moscow is the billionaire capital of the world, home to 76 billionaires, edging out New York which has 70. London came in at fifth place behind HK and Beijing. Five of the Top Ten cities for billionaires are in Greater China.
