The Hong Kong magnate is the richest man in Asia. “Superman’s” empire spans 260,000 employees in 52 countries, and shares in his largest holdings jumped in the past year, adding $5.5 billion to his fortune. His private tech investment company, steered by his partner Solina Chau, was an early-in to Facebook, Skype and Spotify. He’s also generous – lifetime donations make him one of the biggest philanthropists in Asia. The octogenarian has lined up his eldest son Victor to take over management and control of his publicly traded assets.
