Intu Properties was founded by South African-born Gordon, 86, who sold a life assurance business in his homeland to focus on a UK property business. His main Liberty International operation split into Intu Properties and Capital & Counties Properties, with London-based Intu's shares recently improving after the giant Westfield Group increased its stake – a move described as giving Britain’s retail sector “a post-Brexit referendum vote of confidence”. However, the value of his family’s stake in both businesses has fallen to £692m.
