Actually, it is a kind of a homecoming, since the Swire family were originally from Liverpool. Swire was a good friend of Alfred Holt which led to the great partnership between Holt's Blue Funnel Line and their agents, Butterfield and Swire in the Far East . Holt also had a shareholding in the China Navigation Company for many years.
