Today, Bloomberg reported that businesswoman Pansy Ho has officially taken the title of Hong Kong’s richest woman. Her net worth in 2018, according to Forbes, is US$5.5 billion.
The daughter of Macau gaming tycoon Stanley Ho, Pansy chairs property developer Shun Tak Holdings which runs the Macau ferries and operates a number of luxury hotels. She is also the managing director of Sociedade de Turismo e Diversões de Macau (Tourism and Entertainment Company of Macau Limited).
Outside of her father's ventures, Pansy also owns 29% of the MGM Grand Macau.
It's definitely a talking point if you happen to see her at the amfAR gala on Monday, March 26, where she has been named the honorary chair for her ongoing philanthropic work.
