10 Yetis Reads Sunday Times Rich List With Vigour

Did everyone read the Sunday Times Rich List this weekend? Was a cracking read...

A few things I noted, I was shocked to see that there were only 96 women, as opposed to 1019 men... thought the number would be higher.

Also, looking at the geographic regions, the South West was the second lowest in terms of rich people living here. Only the Northeast had a lower amount.

Globally, it is interesting to see Captain Bill Gates has slipped to 5th place in the rich list with his £29bn. The global list was topped by Mukesh and Anil Ambani.

A few PR people in there as well. Matthew Freud (albeit he was alongside his wife, Elisabeth Murdoch for a combined wealth amount of £166m)... there was also the head shed from Brunswick who had a silly amount of money.

All makes for interesting reading.
