Conlon (51) owns 33.9pc of AIM-listed financial services group First Derivatives. The company had a strong performance last year, and his stake is now valued at just over €350m. Having started out as a provider of specialist software to leading global investment banks, the firm has evolved into a provider of products and consulting services, particularly building on its strength in ultra-high performance data analytics. Not only has it extended into the retail, utilities and digital marketing sectors, but it has recently added the Red Bull Formula One team and Airbus Defence and Space to its client list.
