Below is the list of 10 richest man of 2017 in Asia. All the person on the list are based on Realtime list from Forbes.
10. Dilip Shanghvi, India, Net Worth: $10.7 billion
Dilip Shanghvi spent his childhood in the small town of Amreli, the same place he was born on October 1955. He studied at J.J. Ajmera High School and completed his Bachelor’s degree in Commerce from the University of Calcutta. His father used to sell wholesale generic prescription drugs, and Shanghvi helped his father after his undergraduate’s degree. But as he was selling drugs manufactured by other companies, it didn’t give him any satisfaction. So, he started manufacturing his own.
He initiated the company ‘Sun Pharmaceuticals’ in 1982 and since then, his net worth has been escalating. He also took over other prescription drug companies in the US and in Israel for cheap. He was a big risk taken, and at hindsight, it seems to have paid him off handsomely.
9. Shiv Nadar, Net worth: $13.3 billion
Born on 1945 in Tamil Nadu, Indian Industrialist and Philanthropist Shiv Nadar is Founder and Chairman of HCL and the Shiv Nadar Foundation.
