Beijing is fourth on a list of the cities preferred by the world's 2,089 billionaires, more of which live in China than any other country except for the US, the Hurun Report announced this week.

Sixty-eight people with personal wealth of over USD 1 billion live in Beijing, behind only New York, Moscow, and Hong Kong. Beijing is one of five cities in China in the top 20.

Surprisingly, China's leading billionaire isn't Alibaba CEO Jack Ma, it's Hanergy Holdings Chairman and solar energy entrepreneur Li Hejun. That oughta win you some points during your next China billionaire quiz night.

Bill Gates is the world's richest man again, followed by Carlos Helu of Mexico. No Chinese billionaires have cracked the top 10 yet.
