Yang Huiyan is the daugher of a rice farmer turned real estate tycoon. She's 26 years old and she's got $16 billion. In case you were wondering, she's married! That's the photo of her and her groom at a wedding ceremony. Sorry dudes! You missed the wedding in April!

Yang's father, Yang Guoqiang, started his company Biguiyuan in 1997 and the rise was meteoric. The Biguiyuan Group was listed in the Hong Kong Stock Exchange on April 2007. Lee Shau Kee and Cheng Yu-Tung, two of Yang's townmates (Their native places are in Shunde), bought 1 billion of Biguiyuan IPO stocks respectively. He transferred his stock to his daughter.

China's MOFCOM talked about the IPO back in April. The company is called Country Garden Holdings ( 2007.HK). It's huge:
