The actress has an estimated net worth of $245 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Cheung Burger” chain) in Hong Kong, a Football Team (the “Hong Kong Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercheung - Hong Kong), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Maggie) and a fashion line called “Maggie Cheung Seduction”.
