- Story Text: Hong Kong's richest man, Li Ka-shing said on Wednesday (June 21) he has not decided when to retire and will stay as group senior advisor after he steps down as chairman of CK Hutchison Holdings.
Li's comments come a day after the Wall Street Journal reported the tycoon had told associates he planned to retire by his 90th birthday in July next year.
Li told local media he was in very good health and he intends to still keep his eldest son, Victor, 52, as his successor.
With a net worth of $33.2 billion, Li is symbolic of a generation of self-made Hong Kong businessmen who tapped into the former fishing village's rapid development in the 60s and helped turn a small city into a financial hub.
