HK Tycoon Gave $400M Stake to Charity

The heir to the biggest real estate agency in property-mad Hong Kong doesn’t own a house.

Not only that, he won’t inherit his father’s stake in Centaline Group, estimated to be worth about $400 million according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, because it was donated to charity more than a decade ago.
