Billionaire and co-founder of Facebook Eduardo Saverin became the richest resident in the country of Singapore. In 2012 he left behind his country where he grew up to go and live in Asia.
The co-founder of the biggest social media platform in the world has an estimated net worth of $10 billion. The previous richest man in Singapore was actually not one but two men. Until 2010 the brothers Robert & Philip Ng were the richest residents in the country.
In 2015 Saverin launched a new company. B Capital Group was born but this idea only came into existence with the help of the investor Raj Ganguly who helped Saverin on previous projects before.
Most of his money comes from the shares he still owns from Facebook. Following this, he also had some big success by investing in up-and-coming tech start-ups.
In just the few years that they exist, B Capital has already made several investments in new companies who have a lot of potential.
The whole country of Singapore might have financial problems these last few years, and yet this country is a ‘haven’ for investors. There are lots of companies who show potential especially on the subject of technology.
