Rex Tillerson's Assets Include Investments in China, Russia

The secretary of state nominee has almost $500 million in total assets, according to his public financial disclosure report

Calling Rex Tillerson an international deal-maker, the Trump transition team announced this morning that the Exxon Mobil CEO is president-elect Trump’s choice for secretary of state, despite concern over the CEO’s close ties to Russia’s president.

Donald Trump's pick for secretary of state boasts investments in Chinese and Russian firms among his almost $500 million in total assets, documents show.

NBC News obtained a copy of Rex Tillerson's Public Financial Disclosure Report that was submitted as part of the vetting process for the ExxonMobil CEO and chairman's nomination to the role.

It details Tillerson's financial holdings — including numerous stock holdings in U.S., European and Asian companies.

He holds from $109,000 to $361,000 worth of stock in Chinese companies, such as telecommunications, shipping firms and household names like Alibaba. He aso has a small stake — from $1-$15,000 worth of stock — in the Russian internet company Yandex. His largest holdings overall are in Exxon stock and financial instruments.
