Since last year, the sage couple entered the list of the richest people in Britain. According to the list published by the British newspaper The Sunday Times, Sunak family was number 222 in 2022. In the current year, they went down to number 275 from there.
According to The Sunday Times, the property of this Sunak family is currently worth 529 million pounds-sterling. In Indian currency which is more than five and a half thousand crores.
How did the Sunak couple own this huge property? Notably, Rishi’s wife Akshta’s father Narayan Murthy is the founder of the multinational information technology company Infosys. Akshata is one of the members of the Board of Directors of this organization. He earned huge amount of money from Infosys shares.
According to economists, the price of Infosys shares began to fall slowly from the middle of last year. This was causing the Sunak couple to lose at least half a million pounds a day.
Last year Rishi-Akshata’s assets were worth 690 million pounds-sterling. In Indian currency which is more than 7000 crores. In other words, compared to last year, it is known that they have suffered a loss of two thousand crore rupees.
Incidentally, according to information technology experts, Infosys had the lowest earnings last year in terms of dividends. That loss is likely to be recouped this year, though. The share price of Infosys has gradually started to rise since the end of April this year. As a result, it is estimated that Rishi-Akshata’s place in the rich list at the end of the year is likely to move slightly higher.
A Hinduja family of Indian origin currently tops the list of Britain’s richest people. Last year their assets stood at 35 billion pounds-sterling. In Indian currency that is about three and a half lakh crore rupees. The Hinduja family made headlines last year for owning this huge property. In the current year, the amount of this property will increase further.
