Top 10 Richest People in the UK

The United Kingdom has ‘more billionaires per capita than any other country in the world’, which is a staggering statistic. What’s more outstanding is that London – the capital city of England – boasts the highest number of billionaires as residents in the world.

With this in mind, though, the number of billionaires in the UK does not refer only to British nationals. Many on this rich list that the UK promotes includes Russian billionaires (to name just one other nationality). As such, it is important to identify the top 10 richest people in the UK that are also British by birthright or through adopted citizenship.

Let’s take a look at who makes it to the list…
