(Bloomberg) – Pony Ma made $ 6.9 billion richer on Monday after a company backed by Tencent Holdings Ltd. On its plans to go public, while a public appearance by Jack Ma on Wednesday added $ 1.6 billion to his net worth

Although the Hong Kong market has proved particularly volatile lately – the benchmark Hang Seng Index gave up more than half of its gains on Tuesday – it was one of the highlights in the world this month.

Mainland residents took advantage of bargaining prices after international investors forced to dump some of the newly banned Chinese stocks, helping to boost the market, just as concerns about the tougher regulations governing China’s internet giants eased. Meanwhile, businesses linked to Chinese consumers – such as Meituan – have taken advantage as the nation was one of the few able to control the Covid-19 pandemic and the government pledged to increase consumption.

Bonnie Ma’s net worth increase of $ 18.6 billion this month is the largest after Elon Musk’s, while Tencent founder Zhang Qidong earned $ 8.5 billion. Zhong Shanshan of Nongfu Spring, a bottled water maker, who became the richest person in Asia at the end of 2020 and started the year with Warren Buffett’s status as the sixth richest in the world, added $ 16.2 billion in 2021.
