Howard Richest British Hedge Fund Manager

Apr 19 2013 | 1:23pm ET

Brevan Howard Asset Management's Alan Howard remains the wealthiest hedge fund manager in Britain, with a fortune of £1.5 billion.

Howard has added £100 million to his fortune since the last publication of The Sunday Times' biannual Rich List. The newspaper will formally publish the current ranking, headed, as usual, by Queen Elizabeth II, this weekend.

Pamploma Capital's Alexander Knaster was second on the list, with a fortune of £1.1 billion, up almost a quarter from six months ago. BlueCrest Capital Management's Michael Platt jumped from fifth place to third with £950 million, up almost 50% from the last list, and CQS' Michael Hintze leapt from sixth to fourth with £900 million, up 55% from the previous ranking. Winton Capital Management's David Harding, third on the last list, fell to fifth, as his fortune dropped £100 million to £700 million.

Newcomers to the top 20 include Michael Cohen, who left Och-Ziff Capital Management last month, Lansdowne Partners' Paul Ruddock, Winton's Osman Murgian and Cantab Capital Partners' Ewan Kirk.
