The list of the richest people in the world has been published. At the bottom of the list is Lee Shau Kee who is the co-founder of Sun Hung Kai, a successful property development company. He grew up in a very poor family, but today he is worth over $30 billion. Next is Li Ka-Shing, who is one of the most influential businessmen in Asia and is the current chairman of CK Hutchison Holdings and CK Asset Holdings. However, he plans to step down from the position this year. As of March 2019, Li Ka-Shing’s net worth is roughly $32.7 billion. The American businessman, Sheldon Adelson, is the CEO of Las Vegas Sands Corporation and he is worth $35.4 billion.
Although these people may sound rich, they are at the bottom of the list of the richest people. The richest person used to be Jeff Bezos – founder of Amazon – but now it is the famous Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook.
