2017 was a good year for Britain's richest financiers, with the top 13 in the industry adding more than £1 billion to their cumulative wealth as the good times continued to roll in the global markets.

Robert Watts, who compiled the 1,000-member strong list, said the list had become more global since its inception in 1989, with more high net worth individuals from various countries moving to London and the United Kingdom.

The paper has shared select rankings ahead of time, including a breakdown of the richest young entrepreneurs in Britain under the age of 30. "She poured the concrete for the foundations of entrepreneurial wealth on which the modern Rich List is built", said Beresford.

The brothers, aged 82 and 78 respectively, have a wealth of $28 billion, up more than $6 billion over 2017 when they topped the list.

In 1989, the rich list had only five rich individuals from the ethnic minorities; now the number has risen to 86, including 83 from the Asian community.
