Forbes outlines the top 10 Richest Tycoons in MALAYSIA 2017 and their Net Worth

  1. Lim Kok Thay

Net worth as at 25/09/17: $ 4.5 Billion

As Genting Group chairman, Lim Kok Thay has been busy expanding the group’s global footprints in the gaming sector. The conglomerate, which also has a palm-oil business, is expected to open Resorts World Las Vegas in 2019 and launch its long-awaited 20th Century Fox movie-inspired theme park–the world’s first–at the group’s flagship Resorts World Genting outside of Kuala Lumpur in 2017. In November 2016 Genting exited the South Korean gaming sector amid hopes of tapping an emerging Japan gaming market. The fortune is shared with his mother, Lee Kim Hua, and other family members. His late father Lim Goh Tong arrived in Malaysia from Fujian, China, almost 50 years ago at age 19, with barely anything to his name. see also the richest politician in Singapore 2017
