Following the resignation of Liz Truss, the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is Rishi Sunak. Former finance minister, millionaire and son of Indians, Sunak stands out for having a fortune twice that of King Charles III himself.
Sunak’s fortune is around £730 million, which is equivalent to something around R$4.4 billion. To give you an idea, the personal wealth of King Charles III is around £350 million.
Despite having a hugely successful career in the business world, the secret behind the new Prime Minister’s fortune comes from his marriage to Akshata Murty, daughter of Narayana Murthy, a technology mogul and founder of the giant Infosys, the software company of the India.
According to Forbes, Narayana Murthy is among the 700 richest people in the world, with a fortune estimated at around US$ 4.5 billion. Her daughter Akshata has a 1% stake in Infosys (about £3.7bn) and owns Catamaran Ventures UK, the UK branch of her father’s venture capital firm.
Fortune also comes from the financial market
In addition to a good marriage, Rishi Sunak made a lot of money in the financial market, where he started as an analyst at the investment bank Goldman Sachs and later became a partner at TCI and Theleme Partners funds.
The new Prime Minister replaced Liz Truss at a delicate time, when the UK is facing low growth and inflation above 10% for the first time in four decades. Her mission is precisely to try to bring a little soul to the moment of British turmoil.
