Chinese tech and entertainment giant Tencent Holdings reportedly had its best year ever in terms of investment in 2018.
That's according to Reuters, who has seen notes from a behind-closed-doors meeting with the company's president Martin Lau in January, in which the top bod provided a detailed review of the company's investments to date.
In the past 11 years, Tencent has invested in more than 700 companies; 63 of these are now listed, while 122 are valued at over $1bn.
Furthermore, the combined value of firms in which Tencent has a share of at least five per cent comes in at over $500bn.
