No One From UK Makes The World Billionaire Rich List

457

No one on the British rich list of the country’s wealthiest people has a personal fortune that would put them anywhere near a top 10 place on the world rich list.

The Hinduja brothers Sri, 83, and Gopi, 79, top the Sunday Times Rich List for 2019 in the UK with a shared wealth of £22 billion ($28.5 billion) which they split with their families.

They make their money from running 50 companies with a turnover of nearly £40 billion ($52 billion).

Despite this massive fortune, the Hindujas would only lot in at 65thplace on the world rich list.

Amazon chief Jeff Bezos leads the field with £100 billion ($131 billion) in the bank.

Everything about Bezos is a colossal number. Amazon made a £7.72 billion ($10 billion) net profit in 2018 on £178 billion ($230 billion) in revenue. He owns a 16% stake in the business and will hand his wife 4% when their divorce completes in the summer.

The settlement will automatically catapult her to one of the richest women in the world.

Microsoft goliath Bill Gates is the second richest person in the world, after amassing £74.5 billion ($96.5 billion). He is so well-off he has given away his stake in the computer software company, retaining just 1%.
