Who has made the Rich List 2019?

AJ Bell chief executive and co-founder Andy Bell has jumped 308 places to joint 367th place on this year’s Sunday Times Rich List.

The rise of £185m in his estimated worth, taking the total to £360m, comes after the group’s £675m stock exchange IPO in November last year.

Meanwhile, Hargreaves Lansdown co-founder Peter Hargreaves dropped six places to 48th on the list, with a fall of £118m for the year.

His estimated worth remains at £3.05bn, however. His fellow Hargreaves founder, Stephen Lansdown, saw no change to his £1.72bn worth, but dropped to 83rd position from 76th.

Who made the list last year?

The Schroder family also dropped its position on the Rich List, dropping to 35th place from 24th, seeing a decline of £1.22bn. Bruno Schroder, great-great-grandson of John Henry Schroder, co-founder of Schroders, passed away in February aged 86.

Chief executive of the Ashmore Group Mark Coombs saw his worth fall to £1.51bn, a decline of £62m. Ashmore Group is one of the largest British investment groups dedicated to emerging markets.

Family office Stonehage Fleming chairman Adam Fleming also remained in the top 100, but saw no change to his estimated £1.53bn wealth.

US loan growth is not painting a pretty picture for the US economy
