Zara, one of Britain's most accomplished three day eventing competitors, is to help steer the sports investment division of a Hong Kong-based venture capital company that is setting up a business in Britain advising wealthy Chinese and other investors on buying racehorses.
She has become a non-executive director of Hong Kong businessman Johnny Hon's Global Group. ''Mrs Tindall will be leading the development of the company's sports investment division,'' the firm said in a statement.
In practice, that means Zara, 35, will be trying to persuade foreign millionaires to buy racehorses handled by Dr Hon's company.
Here's the odd part:
A spokeswoman for the businessman said: ''Global Group will capitalise upon this success by launching its own professional racing operations in conjunction with its ultra-high net worth partners in China.
Zara, who also has a passion for the theatre, will work on Dr Hon's interest in investing in West End shows, according to his company.
He is currently behind a revival of 42nd Street at London's Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
So really, it's horses AND theatre
because she is so well known for both?
I guess the Brexit has made everyone look far and wide for revenue opportunities.
