ABSTRACT
This article features David Li, chairman of the Bank of East Asia (BEA) in Hong Kong. He is described as jovial, optimistic and blunt. Life for the Li family was good again in 2007, with BEA's share price rising 21%. Li and family are worth $1.4 billion, and one of the richest people in Hong Kong. The Bank of East Asia was one of only four banks, along with HSBC, Citibank and Standard Chartered, to get mainland government permission in 2006 to open a subsidiary, a change that will facilitate large-scale investment.
