ABSTRACT
The article features property developer Zhong Shen Jian, who was named one of Singapore's 40 Richest. In the 1980s, in response to China's cramped living conditions, he began building larger, upscale fully furnished residences. His 71.4 percent stake in Yanlord Land Group, the property outfit he founded and took public in 2006 in Singapore, where he immigrated to, was worth a recent $2.5 billion. That places him fourth among the city-state's 40 Richest.
