Lee Shau Kee

Prior to 1997, Lee Shau Kee was the fourth richest person in the world. He is also a fourth-born child. There not many people in the world who were born fourth and became multi-billionaires, which has given him the nickname “Uncle Four.” In late 2012, the Bloomberg Billionaires Index put Kee in 19th place amongst the world’s richest people. His personal wealth is estimated to be $19 billion and ranked as the second wealthiest man in Hong Kong after Li Ka Shing.

This real estate aficionado is the majority owner of Henderson Land Development, a property conglomerate with interests in properties, hotels, restaurants and internet services. Much of Kee’s wealth has come from investment in Mainland stocks.
