Jack Ma now trails Pinduoduo and Tencent CEOs in Wealth



Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE: BABA) founder Jack Ma is now ranked behind Pinduoduo Inc (NASDAQ: PDD) CEO Colin Huang in terms of net worth, Bloomberg reported Tuesday.

Huang and fellow Chinese tech mogul Ma Huateng of Tencent Holdings Limited (OTC: TCEHY) are worth $58.6 billion and $53.3 billion, respectively, while Ma is worth $50.9 billion, as per Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Even amid increased scrutiny by Chinese regulators, the three billionaires — Huang, Pony Ma, and Jack Ma — managed to add $39 billion, $14.7 billion, and $4.3 billion to their wealth respectively in 2020.

The founder of Alibaba has seen his wealth erode by $11 billion since the Chinese crackdown began in October, noted Bloomberg.

Ma reportedly received a dressing down from Chinese regulators ahead of the initial public offering of Ant Group, a fintech company he co-founded.

The IPO — expected to be the largest in history — was suspended by Chinese authorities in November.
