5. Grace Fu – Net Worth: S$64.5 million
The only other female politician on this list, Grace Fu is the current Minister for Culture, Community and Youth, a role she has held since 1 October 2015.
She is only the second female full Minister since Lee Hwee Hua, who retired from politics in 2011, making Fu the only female full Minister currently.
Fu began her career with Overseas Union Bank (OUB) as an auditor from 1985 to 1988., before joining the Haw Par Group from 1991 to 1995.
She later joined the PSA Corporation in 1995 as an Assistant Director (Finance), where she took on multiple responsibilities, eventually promoting to become the CEO of PSA South-East Asia and Japan.
By the time she was elected into Parliament in 2006, she had probably amassed a sizable fortune already, and likely took a ‘pay-cut’ when she entered politics. (But that’s just speculation.)
