Harvey McGrath

Belfast-born McGrath (62) made a fortune in the city, when he ran the vast Man hedge fund and later became chairman of Prudential.

When leaving the Man group, he had 6m shares, which would now be worth more than €140m as shares almost doubled last year. However he says that he has given much of his fortune away to good causes. “My wife and I would probably have the view that we shouldn’t leave much to our children,” he said last year.
