Legend is an investment holding company with interests in property, internet technology, fund management, and equity investments. Legend, the business, was incorporated in 2006. Legend, the partnership between the founders, began years prior.
From its brick-and-mortar beginnings in Hong Kong, the business rapidly expanded its footprint across the region to include both established and emerging markets today. With the same relentless pace and measured momentum, Legend diversified its business beyond property to include both perennial and emerging industries.
Behind Legend’s continual growth lies its global perspective on markets and industries, as well as its deep-rooted motivation to stay relevant with the times. Yet in spite of which, Legend remains steadfastly guided by, what many would consider traditional values, integrity to self, loyalty to partners, and harmony to all. Call us modern traditionalist.
Having known each other for more than two decades, the founders of Legend were friends first then business partners. They started co-investing in their personal capacity. These ventures would prove successful. Encouraged, they formalized their business relationship and Legend Investment Holdings Limited began in 2006, Hong Kong.
Though they share a friendship, the founders are of distinct personalities and they bring unique qualities to the partnership. Ricky Au, Founder and Executive Chairman, is contemplative, mathematically inclined, and sees several steps ahead. Yang Hsien Chuan, Co-founder and Executive Director, is approachable, reads people well, and values relationships.
