It's believed an anonymous tip-off prompted a police investigation into New Zealand born multi-millionaire businessman Sir Ron Brierley, who is now facing child abuse image possession charges.

Sir Ron, who was knighted in 1988, set up Brierley Investments in the 1960s.

The 82-year-old now lives in the affluent Sydney suburb of Point Piper.
