Year 2016 has been very volatile for the Indian equity markets. First came Brexit – UK voting to exit European Union then Donald Trump’s surprise sweeping victory in US Presidential elections and at the end came the biggest of all of them – Demonetisation. As stock yo-yoed due to global and domestic factors, billionaires too felt the heat. Four out of top five billionaires list have lost money in 2016 as compared to last year.
