How Did Stephen Hung Earn His Money?

Stephen Hung was born to a family of a wealthy family, with his father being a highly successful property investor. After completing his schooling, he went on to join Columbia University and the University of Southern California, gaining a Master’s degree in Business Administration. Diversifying from his family’s expertise in the real estate field, Stephen entered the banking industry and soon became a reputable figure.

Soon enough, Stephen was a part of Merrill Lynch as the Co-Head of Investment Banking for Asia. Additionally, he has been the Vice Chairman of eSun Holdings and a Non-Executive Director of Lippo Group’s AcrossAsia Limited. His success in the industry helped pave the path for Stephen to establish his own investment company. After some time, he decided to enter the field of hospitality and venture into resort and hotel construction.

In 2013, Stephen started to work on the development of a resort in Macau, China, under the banner of Louis XII Holdings Limited. He was joined by Princess Tania de Bourbon Parme for this project. As 2017 rolled around, the project was finished and renamed The 13. However, the establishment ran into financial difficulties as it had not been able to procure a casino license and was not operating the same.

The 13 Holdings Limited, for which Stephen was a Joint-Chairman, had wanted to focus on the uber-wealthy and highly successful entrepreneurs of China and bring them to their establishment. However, the project was never as successful as the people behind it might have liked. Following this, 52 percent stakes in Paul Y Engineering, The 13 Holdings Limited’s engineering subsidiary, were sold. Despite the apparent downstep, Stephen has retained his status as a highly successful businessman and is currently the chairman of The Taipan Investment Group. He also serves as the Vice-Chairman of Rio Entertainment Group.
