Puan Seri Datin Chong Chook Yew is currently the only woman in Malaysia who is in the Forbe’s List for the most richest people in Malaysia. 
She has a net worth of a whopping RM1.15 billion making her richer compared to OSK’s Ong Leong Huat. Puan Sri Datin Chong Chook Yew cofounded Selangor Properties Berhad with her late husband and she still owns a controlling stake.

Selangor Properties Berhad (SPB), was officially incorporated on 12 October, 1963, but the company’s roots can be traced all the way back to a decade earlier. SPB’s original launching pad comprises the esteemed UK Heights and Bukit Tunku projects; both of which have stood the test of time.
Back then, Puan Sri Datin Chong Chook Yew singlehandedly managed all aspects of the operations herself. Always practical, resolute and forward-thinking, Puan Sri could recognize a great opportunity when she saw it. She refurbished 3 shoplots, turned them into flats and rented them out for a respectable amount.
Today, at 91, Puan Sri’s independent, indomitable spirit has remained intact. Her courage, resilience and determination continues to be reflected in the company she founded.
