According to Malaysian Business, the above wealth figures are calculated based on the individuals’ reported personal stakes in listed companies and private holdings that can place a value on as at 18 January 2008.

However cross-holdings and indirect stakes in subsidiaries are not included to avoid double counting and overstating of wealth. Personal debt is taken into account only if it has been reported or made known in the annual statements.

According to the magazine the list is by no means a definitive compendium of the wealthiest in Malaysia. There are many who may be richer, with interests buried in inexplicable webs of companies or nominees, which makes tracing difficult.

The details of the 40 tycoons wealth and their background appears in the magazines February 2008 issue.
