Three new faces make Forbes’ richest Malaysians list
KUALA LUMPUR, March 1 — Three newcomers helped to make Forbes’ list of Malaysia’s 40 richest more difficult to break into this year.
The international business magazine, famous for its lists of the world’s richest people, released its list of the 40 wealthiest Malaysians which required US$155 million (RM465.4 million) to make the cut, up from US$125 million last year.
Although “sugar king” Robert Kuok and communications magnate T. Ananda Krishnan (picture) predictably maintained the top two spots with US$12.4 billion and US$9.9 billion respectively, newcomer Tan Sri Dr Ninian Mogan Lourdenadin made it all the way to No. 22 with half a billion US dollars to his name.
The doctor turned tycoon, who has been chief executive of MBF Holdings for over eight years, also runs a property, retail, leisure and medical empire under the Nadin Group of Companies that stretches across the Pacific from Malaysia to Fiji, Papua New Guinea and Australia.
The 58-year-old has tried several times to take MBF private and held a reported 87 per cent of the company at the end of last year.
Coming in at No. 34 is Gooi Seong Lim, who runs property development company Crescendo with his three brothers.
Worth US$220 million, the 62-year-old has been managing director of Sharikat Kim Loong, which owns a controlling stake in Crescendo and palm oil company Kim Loong Resources, since 1975.
Hong Kong-based Ng Joo Siang, 52, also made it to the list for the first time at No. 37, after building up the family’s fish products business since taking over in 2006 when his father died.
The oldest of seven children is worth US$185 million and runs Pacific Andes International Holdings, which has business operations in over 30 countries across Asia, Europe and America.
Malaysia’s 40 richest are worth a total of US$64.4 billion, up US$2.3 billion from the year before, according to the latest Forbes list.
