Best known as the owner of the Premiership rugby club Wasps, Monaco-resident Richardson (55) made his money by marrying insurance sales with the internet. He sold 123.ie to RSA a few years back - netting himself €52.5m. At the end of 2017, bonds in the club slumped when it admitted breaching some of the rules of the scheme after it over-stated its profits for the year ending June 2017 due to 'accounting irregularities' relating to a £1.1m cash injection from Richardson.
