Second richest man in Hong Kong behind Li Ka-Shing and 43rd richest man in the world according to Forbes in 2009, Lee Shau Kee is the CEO of Henderson Land Development Company and Hong Kong and China Gas Company Limited. He is nicknamed the Warren Buffett of Hong Kong.

The master stroke of Lee Shau Kee was to transfer assets to his family from China to Hong Kong before the advent of communism.

He founded with other investors from Hong Kong Eternal Enterprise Company, a real estate agent which allows him to conclude his first deals.

Ten years later, his activities have gained scope, he decided to restructure the real estate company in a group with multiple activities, it is the birth of Henderson Land Development Company.
