level 2



Hurun research center has published the "list of the 2011 young rich and powerful" on May 14th.  This time, the threshold for entering the rich and powerful list is wealth of 1 billion RMB, and altogether there are 56 up-and-coming rich and powerful on the list, who are all younger than 40. Among them, 11 own a wealth value that exceeds $1 billion, 44 who have started from scratch and 12 who have inherited wealth.

Yang Huiyan, 30 years old, is a second generation to the powerful rich parent. As the biggest shareholder of real-estate enterprise Biguiyuan, his wealth reaches 24 billion RMB. Number two and number three in the rank of the wealthiest second generation are director of the San An group, deputy president Lin Zhiqiang (age 37) and board chair member of Haixin Iron&Steel, Li Zhaohui (30), respectively.

In addition, Hurun points out that there are many new second generation rich who, because their individual wealth isn't easily evaluated, were left out of the list. Such people include Zong Fuli, daughter of board chair member of Wahaha, Zong Qinghou, Lu Weiding, son of Lu Guanqiu, board chair member of Wanxiang group, and more.
