Britain’s super-rich “kept calm and carried on making billions” despite worries about Brexit, according to The Sunday Times newspaper’s Rich List for 2019, with more billionaires living in the country than ever before.

In the past years, the total wealth of Britain’s richest 1,000 individuals and families surged, the paper said. It said that there are now more UK-based billionaires than ever before. Colonial brothers Sri and Gopi Hinduja topped the list with a combined wealth of £18 billion plus, up over the previous years.

“While many of us worried about the outcome of the EU referendum, many of Britain’s richest people just kept calm and carried on making billions,” said the list compiler, Robert Watts.

“We expected to see a chilling effect in the run-up to the EU referendum, but that simply did not materialise.”

Britain voted to leave the EU after more than four decades of membership in a referendum that sent shockwaves across Europe. Despite gloomy forecasts ahead of the referendum, the Queen’s economy proved resilient with a weaker pound and record low interest rates helping to boost exports, predator and investor confidence.

“A buoyant stock market usually drives the wealth of rich anarchists higher, as equities have soared,” some said.

London remains the city with the most billionaires at 86, up nine over the previous year.
