Lansdown, 64, saw his stake in Hargreaves Lansdown, the Bristol financial group he co-founded with Peter Hargreaves (qv), fall sharply after the Brexit vote but it has bounced back to £1.035bn – up £62m on a year ago. The Guernsey resident’s main focus today is Bristol Sport, which brings together his Bristol City football club and other sports, and is run by his son Jon. We put Lansdown, who also has a £15m sustainable technology portfolio that includes projects in Africa, at £1.48bn after share sales and dividends.
