Seamus Fitzpatrick

Cavan man Seamus Fitzpatrick (48) heads up €4bn private equity firm Capvest Group in Mayfair, which has generated some staggering returns for backers, particularly when it doubled its money selling €1.5bn-valued Findus frozen foods.

Capvest is also behind Valeo foods and the €350m Mater Private. The low-profile Fitzpatrick spent €8m on a Shrewsbury Road pad in 2010. He’s got a stake in Conroy Gold, which is developing Ireland’s only major gold mine.
