About Pansy Ho
Pansy Ho has joined the rank of Asia’s richest businesswomen with an estimated net worth of $3.7 billion as of December 2015 according to Forbes. The windfall from the public listing of MGM China in Hong Kong has boosted her bank account with over $1.4 billion in cash, while her 29% stake in the Macau gambling venture is now valued at nearly $2.2 billion.
Pansy (born on 26 August 1962), is the daughter of gambling tycoon Stanley Ho, 89, a longtime fixture on the Forbes Hong Kong Rich list.Although the elder Ho’s four-decade monopoly on gambling in Macau was ended in 2002, the industry is still very much a family affair. Besides Pansy’s role with MGM China, her brother Lawrence Ho is co-chairman of Melco Crown Entertainment, a joint venture with Australian billionaire James Packer.
