In just a few decades, China produced the second largest population of wealthy and ultra-wealthy in the world. Today, China ranks a fast-rising #2 in both the number of millionaires (2.4 million vs. 7.1 million in the U.S.)* and billionaires (213 vs. 536 in the U.S.) ** globally. China’s top 1% own over one-third of total assets, quite astonishing in a putatively socialist country where most of the largest companies are still state owned enterprises.

Following a number of successful listings by Chinese technology companies in the past six months, U.S. investors are eagerly awaiting the planned listing of Alibaba. The world’s largest e-commerce company will be the largest Chinese offering to date and perhaps displace Facebook as the largest technology IPO of all time.
Investment banks are jostling for a place at the banquet table for a slice of what might be a $200 billion market cap valuation, and hoping that investors’ appetites will be far from satisfied. If the price pops, Alibaba could be followed closely by JD.com, Sina’s Weibo, and a host of other smaller Chinese companies, which will seek to take advantage of the festive mood to launch on the U.S. stock markets.
One group of investors that is surprisingly enthusiastic about this new crop of Chinese public companies are the China short sellers.
