TSunday Times richest people Sunday Times Rich List - Richest People in Britain 2006

The head of Mittal Steel has topped the Sunday Times Rich List of the 1000 wealthiest people in the United Kingdom again in 2006. Lakshmi Mittal has now been firmly placed in the number one position for the second year running with an estimated £14.8 billion pounds (which is more money than any UK person has ever owned). The Indian born steel tycoon increased his wealth by more than 81 million pounds over the past twelve months.

Another foreign born UK billionaire is in second position on the Sunday Times rich list with £10.8 billion pounds. Roman Abramovich was born in Russia and made his billions from oil. At just 39 years of age Abramovich is also the proud owner of the high profile Chelsea football club. His £10.8 billion looks even more impressive when you see that his assets in 2005 were just £7.5 billion!

This year's 18th edition of the rich list has shown an impressive increase in wealth throughout the United Kingdom. It now takes at least £60 million just to make it on the list of 1000, which is up by £10 million from the 2005 rich list.

There are now 54 billionaires listed, with 20 of them being born outside of UK. The combined wealth of the super rich is an amazing £300.964 billion pounds, 20 percent more than the total in 2005.

The annual Times Rich List is a conservative estimate of the assets of the 1000 wealthiest people in Britain, Ireland, and Scotland. The assets of the people appearing on the list are worked out in January each year and published in the Sunday Times special edition of the Times newspaper in April. Their wealth is estimated by calculating the identifiable assets like the value of their shares in publicly quoted companies, fine art, real estate, and other easily accessible assets. Things like small stock holdings and private bank account are not included for privacy reasons.
