Capt. Harry Banga is making headlines once again!

The dynamic Capt Banga was recently featured in the popular magazine - Forbes Asia, as one of the richest personalities. Capt Banga added his signature style of panache and charm to the cover of Forbes Asia publication, taking the shipping industry to an all time high!

"Harry is one of those rare breeds of executives who has a trader's mind-set and good interpersonal skills," says Ronald Lee, who heads private wealth management for Asia-Pacific at Goldman Sachs. "He's a compelling storyteller with a broad awareness of the world, financial markets and political developments. He also builds great relationships with people--be it his customers, bankers or peers."

Former vice chairman of the Noble Group, Forbes magazine mentions that Capt Harry Banga made his money over a 21-year career with Asia's largest commodity trader before cashing in the last of his shares in 2012. He started Hong Kong-based Caravel Group with sons Angad and Guneet in 2013 to trade and ship commodities. Originally from Punjab, India, he's lived in Hong Kong since the 1970s. Capt Banga was honored in 2011 with the Pravasi Bharatiya Samman Award, the highest distinction conferred on overseas Indians.
