LONDON – Britain’s new prime minister, Rishi Sunak, has made history at just 42 years old as the country’s first leader of color and the youngest in centuries.

He also broke the record for being the richest Downing Street resident – surpassing King Charles III.

Sunak, who succeeded Liz Truss as leader of Britain’s ruling Conservative Party on Monday, worked as a Goldman Sachs analyst and then a hedge fund manager before becoming a politician eight years ago.

But he owes most of his wealth to his wife Akshata Murthy, whose father, N.R. Narayana Murthy – a different spelling of his last name – founded the Indian IT company Infosys.

Net worth is $844 million

Richer than the king?

King Charles III welcomed Rishi Sunak during an audience at Buckingham Palace in London, where he invited the newly elected leader of the Conservative Party to become Prime Minister and form a new government. Drawing date: Tuesday, October 25, 2022.
