Sam Goi, a 62-year-old food tycoon who built his fortune from making spring roll skins, debuted at No. 12 with a net worth of $1.2 billion. To compile the list, public fortunes were calculated using share prices and exchange rates as of July 12. For privately held assets, Forbes Asia estimated their worth if they were made public.
