Hollywood may have Jay-Z and Beyoncé as its power couple, but Hong Kong boasts a dynamic duo of its own: veteran actors Tony Leung and Carina Lau.

But it’s not just films that they’re famous for. The stars are also known for having a great eye when it comes to investments.

Back in 2013, well-known Chinese entertainment website Changchun Guomao put together a list of rich female Chinese celebrities. Lau topped the list with investments valued at US$100 million, even surpassing mainland China’s most popular actress Fan Bingbing, according to reports. Meanwhile, in 2019, Lau and Leung’s net worth reached US$150 million, as estimated by Sohu.

The pair have bought properties in Shanghai, Hong Kong and other places during their marriage. Sina reported that their downtown Shanghai mansion is worth US$26 million, while Sunday More claimed that the couple also has at least 10 properties in total, valued at a staggering US$115 million.

But there’s one stand-out property that Lau has shared subtle glimpses of on her social media: the May Tower mansion.

Let’s take a peek inside …
