The 24-year-old now owns 21.45 percent shares, the company said in a statement. He also took up the position of executive director at the company thus earning an additional HK$3.9 million ($498,000) excluding bonuses each year. After completing his master's degree from Tsinghua University, Eric first joined the company as an assistant to the Sino Biopharmaceutical's president in June 2018.

Sino Biopharmaceutical in a statement said that Eric's parents told the company's board that they transferred the shares to him in an effort to "refine the management and inheritance of family wealth". In a statement, the family said it plans for Tse to "hold the relevant shares in long-term," but said that Tse's new status will "not have any material impact on the business operations of the Company." Millionaire Father Offers to Pay £240,000 & Durian Fruit Farm Stakes to the Man Willing to Marry His 26-Year-Old VIRGIN, English-Speaking Daughter.

The company added, "Mr. Tse, Eric S Y indicated that in response to nomination for Billionaire List or wealth ranking organized by media or other organizations, he will endeavour not to participate in such rankings in his own name, and would recommend participating in such nominations in the name of the Tse Ping family ..."

He has some famous friends like Rihanna, Bella Hadid and Yao Ming. However, Tse wants no part in the wealth rankings and wants to maintain a low profile. But his Instagram boasts of popular models and singers at parties. He has also shared pictures with political leaders, royals, sports personalities and many other famous people.
