This is a Chinese name; the family name is 李 (Li)
Li Ka Shing
Born: July 29, 1928
Occupation: Chairman, Cheung Kong Holdings
Net worth: $18.8 billion USD (2005)
Spouse: Chong Yuet Ming
Li Ka Shing, GBM, KBE (Traditional Chinese: 李嘉誠; pinyin: Lǐ Jiāchéng, Jyutping: Lei5 Gaa1-sing4, Li2 Gia1-sêng5 gdr, born July 29, 1928), is the richest person of Chinese descent in the world, the richest person in Asia, and the 10th richest man in the world. Presently, he is the Chairman of Hutchison Whampoa Limited (HWL) and Cheung Kong Holdings in Hong Kong.
A Harvard Business School article summarizes Li's career in the following way:
From his humble beginnings in China as a teacher’s son, a refugee, and later as a salesman, Li provides a lesson in integrity and adaptability. Through hard work, and a reputation for remaining true to his internal moral compass, he was able to build a business empire that includes: banking, construction, real estate, plastics, cellular phones, satellite television, cement production, retail outlets (pharmacies and supermarkets), hotels, domestic transportation (sky train), airports, electric power, steel production, ports, and shipping.
Considered one of the most powerful figures in Asia, Li was named "Asia's Most Powerful Man" by Asiaweek in 2000. Forbes Magazine and the Forbes family honored Li Ka-shing with the first ever "Malcolm S. Forbes Lifetime Achieve Award," September 5, 2006, in Singapore. On March 9, 2006, Forbes ranked him as 10th richest man in the world at US$18.8 billion; he has since gained one rank due to the death of Kenneth Thomson. In spite of his wealth, Li has a reputation for leading a no-frills lifestyle, and is known to wear simple black dress shoes and an inexpensive Seiko wristwatch.
Li is also a noted philanthropist; his 1981 donations resulted in the founding of Shantou University, near his hometown of Chaozhou. After the 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake disaster, he reportedly pledged a total of US$3 million. In 2005, Li announced a HK$1 billion (US$128 million) donation to the University of Hong Kong, which provoked controversy over the public status of the university. To date, Mr. Li has given away well over (US)$1 billion in philanthropy.
The Li Ka-Shing Library at the Singapore Management University is also named in his honor after a US$11.5 million donation to the higher education institution.
Li was invited by Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping to become a member of the board of directors of the China International Trust and Investment Corporation (CITIC) to support the economic reform initiatives that Deng was attempting to develop. CITIC is China's largest conglomerate and is 42 percent owned by the government of China. It serves as the chief investment arm of China's central government and holds ministry status on the Chinese State Council. Li served only one year on CITIC's board before resigning his directorship. For many years, he served as Vice Chairman of the Hong Kong Shanghai Bank (HSBC).
Li is often referred to as "Superman" in Hong Kong because of his business prowess. His peers in Hong Kong include Lee Shau Kee of the Henderson Land Development, New World Development's Cheng Yu-tung, Kwok family of Sun Hung Kai Properties, Henry Fok Ying-tung, among others.資料來源： wiki
