    I agree, that was a fascinating thread and was extremely informative.

    But this is a separate thread on people's net worths. So take it easy on the judgements, will ya?

    Just as others want to find out what other member's salaries are or how many vacation days they have or their reasons for moving to/living in HK, I'm curious to know what people's net worths are. Who knows? Maybe Richard Li and his buddies are secretly lurking the forum.

    This may not be helpful to you but others may find it helpful. To each their own.

    Anyway, this is just an informal poll. There's no need to take it so seriously.
    Comment accepted.

    I'm not looking for any higher moral purpose other than to understand what you want to get out the exercise - and hoping that Richard Li will log on and tell us his net worth (anonymously) doesn't strike me as very compelling.

    I'm genuinely interested in why you think this is an interesting topic if it's not to see how you fit in financially - ie whom you beat, who beats you - within a random, anonymous, informal and pretty limited survey.

    I honestly can't see the fun or the purpose, even if half of the contributions are genuine.

    But I do concede - and am often reminded by Mrs Doe - that I can be overly serious about these things.

    I spend too much time here chatting then out creating wealth!

    Maybe I should re-align my priorities.

    Quite often these sort of polls are driven by IFA looking for new targets.

    Unfortunately we saw this too late to delete.

    Bottom line, such polls serve no purpose.

    I'm genuinely interested to know why you are so uptight about it. If you see no fun or purpose, then feel free not to participate. No one is forcing you.

    I don't know why you feel the need for me to explain my motivations to you.

    Or entrepreneurs looking to tap up rich investors.
    Or princesses looking for their sugar daddys.
    Or budding investors simply wanting to know who to take advice from. No one wants to take financial advice from someone who's not financially successful.

    The reasons can be many and varied.

    Everyone - take a chill pill
