The Sunday Times Rich List

Source of Wealth: Music,Hedge-Fund,Property,InheritanceNationality: United Kingdom

The 2011 Sunday Times Rich List, released this weekend, reveals that the 1,000 wealthiest people in the country are now worth a combined £395.8 billion, equivalent to more than a third of the national debt.The number of billionaires has risen from 53 to 73, while nine people have seen their fortunes rise by £1 billion or more during the past 12 months alone.

The soaring fortunes of Britain’s wealthiest men and women have put them within striking distance of the pre-recession boom in 2008, when there were 75 billionaires and the 1,000 wealthiest people were worth £413 billion.

Lakshmi Mittal, the steel tycoon, is again Britain’s richest man but, surprisingly, is also the biggest loser. The global financial crisis has seen his fortune fall by a fifth to £17 billion. Alisher Usmanov, the Russian mining magnate, has risen to become Britain’s second richest man after more than doubling his wealth to £12.4 billion.
