> Maya Karin has RM8mil in assets
Local celebrity Maya Karin Roelcke has successfully invested in properties locally and overseas which are now reportedly worth RM8mil. She first started property investment in 2003 with the purchase of a shoplot and apartment using only RM150,000. The award-winning actress and singer nw reportedly owns eight properties, including one in London and two in Malaysia. Her overall assets have already exceeded RM8mil and almost half her annual income comes from rental returns. "One of the reasons I invested in properties is because housing is a necessity and we often read about veteran artists who do not have their own homes. I thought if something happens, at least I have a home for shelter," she told Bisnes Metro.
