Jarrod Ritchie, founder and CEO of TPI Enterprises, talks to the Financial Times about meeting fund managers in Hong Kong. His firm produces opiates from poppies – such as morphine – for the painkiller industry. The irony he refers to is that the Chinese ceded Hong Kong Island to the British after the Opium Wars (Hong Kong reverted to China in 1997).
