The Hinduja brothers with a massive 3. 2 billion pound hike in their fortunes over the previous year have topped the 2017 list of the richest people in the UK with a wealth of 16.2 billion pounds.
Sri and Gopi Hinduja are the richest people in the UK, and the brothers are among a record 134 billionaires on the list, 14 more than were recorded in the 2016 edition.
Having first topped the list in 2014, the Hinduja brothers, Srichand, 81, and Gopichand, 77, have a vast array of business investments under the Hinduja Group.
The Hinduja brothers racked up their sizeable wealth through property development, car manufacturing, and more recently, the old War Office in London’s Whitehall for £300 million.
