Zakay, 66, and his brother Sol, 64, have quickly built a portfolio of 37 hotels, including the Royal Crescent in Bath. They also have at least 165 commercial properties totalling 7m sq ft and more than 320 tenancies. The pair’s London-based Topland operation has financed schemes with a development value of more than £750m and the siblings have also diversified into lending, venture capital and renewable energy. Their large property portfolio’s increase in worth justifies raising the pair to £3.25bn.
