Zhao Wei's networth is 5.6 bil and why she is richer than Fan Bingbing
Zhao Wei acquired 29% of publicly-listed Wanjia Wenhua 万家文化 recently with 30.6 billion yuan of capital. This led to the Shanghai Stock Exchange's query on her sources of funding and if she is acting on behalf of Alibaba or its affiliates.
In answering the query, Zhao Wei recently declares that she and her businessman husband Huang Youlong have a combined networth of 5.666 bil yuan (S$1.16 bil) with 666 mil yuan in fixed assets and properties. Zhao Wei says that this is her own family wealth and not related to Alibaba or its affiliates.
Zhao Wei and her husband have shareholdings across diverse industries and companies including Alibaba Pictures, Talent Television and Film Co. Ltd (Tangde) and wine production.
When divided, Zhao Wei's assets seem to outweigh her husband's as she lives up to the nickname of the Warren Buffett of the Asian Film Industry.
Zhao Wei has been estimated to be earning several multiples of what Fan Bingbing is earning. Some say, 10 times, when boss Fan is already so filthy rich (makes 128 mil yuan / S$26 mil in 2015) and arguably a more popular actress.
Why is Zhao Wei earning more? It could be that she is really a great stock investor in the Chinese markets or that her husband is really wealthy to begin with.
Please note that Fan Bingbing is not married yet, so if her high-networth husband-to-be, Li Chen's assets are added up, they may pose a challenge to Zhao Wei's ranking. Li Chen is rumoured to have a fan-tastic inheritance from his family with military connections.
