Eton-educated Schroder, 84, gave £50,000 to the "remain" campaign, then saw the share price of his finance group plummet after Brexit, but it soon recovered and pushed to new heights. Schroder, the great-great-grandson of the Schroders founder, is still a non-executive director of the £8bn City-based operation. It reinvented itself as a fund manager after the banking arm was sold in 2000, with the family making £320m. The Schroder family has a stake of nearly 48% worth more than £3.8bn in the main business – up £134m – and other assets take it to £4.26bn.
