Wealth-X, global wealth intelligence and prospecting firm headquartered in Singapore, came up with a list of 10 wealthiest billionaires.

The list was dominated by ‘technopreneurs’ as six of them made their fortunes from technology or technology-related businesses.

The combined market capitalisation of these 10 individuals' primary companies is $1.7 trillion, which means they have created wealth that's four times what they themselves are worth.
