Angela Leong On Kei (Chinese: 梁安琪; pinyin: Liáng Ānqí; born 23 March 1960) is a Macau billionaire businesswoman and politician. She is a member of the Legislative Council of Macau, and the fourth wife of Stanley Ho.
As of September 2019, she has an estimated net worth of US$4.1 billion.
Leong founded Macau Sanshui Communal Association to provide social services to new immigrants. With the support of her husband to reflect the casino interests in the political scene, Leong entered electoral politics in 2005 and has then served as a directly elected legislator. The mobilization of both the working class and casino employees, a key building block of the Macau middle class, is key to Leong's political career.
She met her husband-to-be, Stanley Ho, a Macau casino tycoon famous in the political and entertainment industries in Hong Kong and Macau, 40 years her senior, when she was a dance teacher in 1986. She became his fourth "wife" and has four children. She is the director of the Sociedade de Jogos de Macau, a casino company owned by her husband-to-be, Stanley Ho, since its founding and the managing director since December 2010, and the vice-chairman of the Macau Jockey Club.
