The latest list of top 50 richest Malaysians is here. It’s an annual list and it looks into the wealth of the 50 richest Malaysians. This list is from Forbes. Who’s in and who’s out? Since this is kopiandproperty.com, we look a little deeper into the list with a focus on all the ones who are related to property yeah. If you like to dive into the full list, click here for the Full list of top 50 richest Malaysians in Forbes.com here.

Within the first 10, we have the following person, their wealth and the business they are in:

#1 Robert Kuok – US$12.2 billion – palm oil, shipping, property

#2 Quek Leng Chan – US$9.6 billion – banking, property

#3 – Koon Poh Keong & siblings – US$6.4 billion – aluminium

#4 – Ananda Krishnan – US$5.8 billion – telecoms, media, oil-services

#5 – Teh Hong Piow – US$5.5 billion – banking

#6 – Lee Yeow Chor & Yeow Seng – US$4.9 billion – palm oil, property

#8 – Lim Wee Chai – US$4.9 billion – rubber gloves

#9 – Chen Lip Keong – US$3.4 billion – casinos, property, energy

#10 – Tan Yu Yeh & Yu Wei – US$2.7 billion – retailing

What’s the actual percentage for ‘property’ then?

I hope it’s clear to everyone that ‘property’ is repeated in 40 percent of all the top 10 yeah. I have also looked through the remaining richest Malaysians an I can tell you the actual percentage for ‘property’ is 21 out of 50. That’s a whopping 42 percent yeah. This is why when anyone tells me that property investment is no longer the favourite and everyone has moved on to newer investments, I will just smile. If they are good friends, I will tell them why. Else, it’s okay. Everyone can build their wealth their way. Just that these top 50 richest Malaysians think of property as important enough.

Happy investing into whatever you love. Just remember not to be taken away by hypes and buy a certain stock or even type of investment simply because you think that the CEO of the company is charismatic or that many people are into it. Value of the business is far more important on a longer term basis and any valuation based on just one person or even popularity and not the business or the fundamental may not last. Happy understanding.
