Meet Ji Kaiting, the low-profile millennial Chinese billionaire with a passion for Ferraris, McLarens and other supercars
In China today, women billionaires have become the new affluent cohort behind the wheels of Ferrari and Lamborghini. Ji Kaiting is such a case. She had once earned the title of the youngest billionaire in the world and owns numerous luxury cars including limited editions.
She has also been a mysterious figure due to the lack of information about her, and her laying low had arouses the curiosity of many. So if you haven’t heard of her, here are some interesting facts about her family background, education, career and affluence that may fill you with admiration and envy for the young lady.
She comes from a prestigious background
As the daughter of Ji Haipeng, CEO of real estate firm Logan Property Holdings, Ji Kaiting was reported to be the world’s youngest billionaire, according to Forbes back in 2014, at the mere age of 24. According to Australian media reports in 2019, she was said to have a net fortune of US$1.3 billion.
When Ji was only 24, her father had transferred part of the family fortune to her name. Ji also received 85 per cent of the company thanks to her father, making her the largest stockholder in Logan Property Holdings.
She’s a hard worker
Despite her initial wealth, Ji is said to be a hard worker in her own right. She has always been at the top of her class and earned a diploma from Singapore Institute of Management as well as a bachelor’s degree in finance and economics from University of London.
In terms of work, Ji has demonstrated the skills she learned during her days at university while helping her father to run the company. Additionally, employees in the company have also recognised her excellent management skills.
She loves supercars
Aside from her background, Li is just a normal girl. She enjoys dressing up and has an expensive taste when it comes to automobiles.
Reports say she loves Ferrari especially when it comes to limited editions. There are only 499 “LaFerrari” in the world and Ji is the proud owner of one of them. Aside from Ferrari, she also owes custom-designed sports cars from Pagani and McLaren.
She keeps a low profile
When Ji was announced as the youngest billionaire in the world in 2014, reporters had a hard time gathering information about her. The reason points to the fact that she has a Western pseudonym, different to her birth name in Chinese, making it difficult to trace her.
“Kei Perenna Hoi Ting” is said to be Ji’s official name but in the past, she had also used “Ji PeiLi” to identify herself.
Aside from the information about Ji’s wealth and family relationship that were available, there were also hardly any photos of her. Even the employees of the company had mentioned that they barely knew her face too.
A hot bachelorette
Even though it is hard to learn about her personal life, Chinese media shared that Ji is currently single. With her wealth, educational status and outstanding career, it is surprising to learn that Ji is available.
Her situation must make her one of the most desirable bachelorettes out there and some might also hope that her single status changes to “taken” soon.
