Tadashi Yanai, founder and president of Fast Retailing which owns Japanese brand Uniqlo, and Dieter Schwarz, owner of German retail group Schwarz Gruppe which operates Lidl and Kaufland brands, have been listed at numbers 41 and 46.

Also members of the Walton family, including Christy, Jim, Alice and S Robson, from the American multinational retail corporation Wal-Mart have been set at the 8th, 9th, 11th and 12th rankings.
