India-Born Reuben Brothers Top UK Rich List

Britain's annual rich list released recently has a distinctly Indian flavour with two sets of India- born brothers grabbing the top two slots.

Mumbai-born property magnates David and Simon Reuben have topped 'The Sunday Times' Rich List 2016 with a fortune of 13.1 billion pounds, followed by the Hinduja brothers at 13 billion pounds.

The Reubens, who own London Oxford Airport and London Heliport, have increased their fortune by 3.4 billion pounds in the past year to jump to the top slot.

Srichand and Gopichand Hinduja, who head the Hinduja Group, hold on to their slot from last year with an unchanged fortune.

The UK has clocked 120 billionaires this year, the highest recorded since 2006, but the number of London billionaires fell for the first time since the financial crash - from 80 in 2015 to 77.

On the global scale, India has a record 56 billionaires, compared to 193 in China and 43 in Russia.
