Reuben Brothers Top Rich List 2019 …. Almost

David and Simon Reuben have been ranked second in The Sunday Times ‘The UK’s Richest 1000’ 2019.

The newspaper estimates the Reuben Brothers wealth at £18.664bn, up by a significant £3.568bn compared to last year when they occupied fourth position.

It attributes their wealth to their Internet and property activities, referring particularly to what it calls a ‘buying spree’ of £1bn of London property last year and sales of stakes in their Global Switch data centres.

First in this year’s rich list was Siri And Gopi Hinduja and family with £22bn, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe – last year’s richest person – in third with £18.15bn. It’s certainly a close run thing at the top and few would bet against the Reuben Brothers taking the top slot in 2020 – nor, for that matter, continuing their buying spree of prime central London property.
