Summit’s Aziz Khan on Singapore rich list
Bangladesh’s entrepreneur Muhammed Aziz Khan, chairman of Summit Group, was named as the 34th richest man in Singapore, reports Forbes.
His net worth was $910 million as of July 25, said Forbes on its website.
The 63-year-old is one of the pioneers in the power industry of Bangladesh with more than 36 years of experience.
Summit Group has interests in power, ports, fibre optics, real estate and liquefied natural gas.
A permanent resident of Singapore, Khan is planning to list power unit Summit Power International (SPI) on the Singapore exchange.
He ventured into businesses in 1973, at a time when there was hardly any track record of the country producing successful entrepreneurs.
But in the course of the last four decades, Khan has gone on to cement his name among the country's most illustrious businessmen.
