Read The Amazing Son in Law by Lord Leaf Chapter 1685 – The Banks Family is a big family that was born in Huizhou, but has been standing in Eastcliff for a century.
During the Quintong Dynasty, when the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom movement swept across China, the Banks Family followed the red-top businessman and risked his life to transport arms and grains for the Quintong army, which was appreciated by the Quintong government.
After that, the Banks Family moved to Eastcliff from Huizhou with rich accumulation and wealth. Since then, the family has been in business for generations and its strength has been at the forefront of the country.
In the past few decades, the Banks Family and the Wade family were fighting against each other. Under the a****k of Charlie’s father, Bruce, they were already slightly tired, but after Bruce’s d***h, the Banks Family immediately stepped on the Wade family. Became the first in the country.
The Lord of the Banks Family was named Alfred Banks.
Lord Banks is sixty in his seventies this year. Although he is not very old, he is no longer a prime man.
It stands to reason that his life has been considered a success, but he is still not satisfied.
He hopes to lay a solid foundation for the Banks Family before he retires. At the very least, to realize the long-cherished wish of “1 is greater than 2+3”.
Since ancient times, no one in the business field can truly dominate.
The true meaning of the so-called 1 is greater than 2+3 refers to the sum of the family ranked first, the overall strength is greater than the family ranked second, and the family ranked third.
To be more specific, it is equivalent to that the Banks Family’s comprehensive strength is greater than the combined strength of the Wade Family and the Sun family.
In this way, even if the second-ranked and third-ranked join forces to fight against yourself, you don’t have to worry at all.
Only in this way, the Banks Family can truly sit back and relax.
Now, the gap between the Banks Family and the Wade family is indeed getting wider, but if you want to truly achieve 1 greater than 2+3, there is still a gap of at least a few hundred billion in assets.
Therefore, the Banks Family is now actively seeking breakthroughs overseas, hoping to realize this ambition in one fell swoop.
As long as this goal is achieved, Eastcliff will no longer have the concept of three big families. Instead, it is the new pattern of the Banks Family that despises the heroes.
Therefore, Lord Ban ks attaches great importance to this shipping business.
Hearing that the old man attaches great importance to ocean transportation, one of the heirs of the Banks Family couldn’t help but show off in front of him: “Grandpa, grandson feels that the development of the world economy has encountered considerable resistance now, and all countries have import and export trades. Great contraction. I don’t know when foreign trade will fully recover. In this case, if you bet on ocean shipping, the risk is still very high. It is very likely that you will copy the bottom half of the mountain. So grandson advises you to think twice. Then go!”
“Think twice?” Lord Banks snorted coldly and ignored him. Instead, he looked at the middle-aged man next to him and sternly reprimanded: “Fifth, how did you discipline your son? He didn’t grow well, so I dare to question here. My decision, is it true that I am old and still able to eat?”
The fifth son is Jordan Banks, the fifth son of Lord Banks.
The Banks Family has five sons and two daughters.
Jordan is the fifth son of Father Banks and the last of the seven children.
The young man who just spoke was Austin, the youngest son of Jordan.
Austin is just eighteen years old this year, and is considered an academic genius. Last year, he was admitted to Harvard University on his own strength.
