Eton-educated Keswick and three of his family sit on the board of Hong Kong-based conglomerate Jardine Matheson, which had revenues of $42.1bn in 2016. The group traces its history back to the 1830s when their ancestor William Jardine co-founded the business, initially trading in tin, cotton and opium, but its interests now span hotels, food, cars and property. Shanghai-born Keswick, 78, is its chairman and his family’s stakes – excluding those in trusts – have risen to £3.16bn. Other interests add £100m.
