China's Shenzhen Stock Exchange, in five weeks following Forbes' February 13th cut off for the 2015 list of the world's wealthiest individuals, the index rose 18%, minting 23 new middle kingdom billionaires. It brings the number of ten-figure fortunes in the country to 235; the United States with 533, is the only nation home to more.
The richest newcomer is Zhou Quinfei, 44, whose Lens Technology company supplies touchscreen glass for Apple and Samsung phones and tablets. Lens Technology, which she founded in 2003, now has more than 60,000 employees. The company's public offering on the Shenzhen Exchange was March 18; Zhou's 88% stake is worth $3.8 billion. She joins a highly elite group: of the 202 female billionaires worldwide, only 31 are self-made (Forbes, April 13, 2015).
