LONDON: Leading London-based NRI industrial tycoons, the Hinduja family has topped the 'Asian Rich List' for the sixth successive year in 2019 with an estimated net worth of 25.2 billion pounds, an increase of over 3 billion pounds over the previous year.
According to the 'Asian Rich List 2019' released at the Asian Business Awards here on Friday night, steel magnates Lakshmi Mittal and his son Aditya Mittal remained in second place, with a total wealth of 11.2 billion pounds, down 2.8 billion pounds from last year.
India's High Commissioner to the UK Ruchi Ghanashyam released the list which is a compilation of the 101 wealthiest Asians in Britain, highlighting exceptional entrepreneurial achievement over the last 12 months.
S P Lohia (Petrochemicals) took the third place with 5.8 billion pounds.
The entries of the 'Asian Rich List 2019' have a combined wealth of more than 85.2 billion pounds.
The figure is increasing year on year and this year's overall wealth increases by over 5 billion pounds.
The list features seven new entries, including hotelier Joginder Sanger and his son Girish Sanger who enter at number 40 on the list with an estimated value of 300 million pounds.
Leading NRI entrepreneur Lord Swraj Paul and family are 17th in the list with a net worth 900 million pounds- an increase of 100 million pounds over the previous year.
Shailesh Solanki, executive editor of Asian Marketing Group (AMG) publisher of the Rich List said, "The Asian Rich List is carefully compiled by a team of experts and it is the definitive guide to Asian wealth in Britain."
Gopichand Hinduja, co-chairman of the Hinduja Group said "our existing portfolio of companies is all in the sunrise sectors. Our focus is on banking and financial services, healthcare and of course, philanthropy."
In London, the Hindujas are continuing with the conversion of the Old War Office, on which they have a 250-year lease, into a luxury residential and 125-room Raffles Hotel complex.
He said in India, there has been investment worth Rs 1,000 crore (108 million pounds) in car and bus manufacturers Ashok Leyland, where Gopi's younger son, Dheeraj Hinduja, is chairman.
Gopichand Hinduja称，已经投资100亿卢比(合1.08亿英镑)在印度汽车和公共汽车制造商Ashok Leyland，由Gopichand的次子Dheeraj Hinduja担任董事长。
It recently inaugurated a cutting edge electric vehicle facility in its Ennore plant at Chennai. Ashok Leyland is introducing battery-operated technology in its buses.
Gopi said "All our businesses are going through a digital transformation journey."
For example, "Hinduja Global Solutions (HGS) is ramping up its headcount in the US, with plans to add 600 more people by June 2019 by setting up a new centre in Florida."
例如，“Hinduja Global Solutions (HGS)正在增加其在美国的员工数量，计划到2019年6月在佛罗里达州建立一个新中心，再招募600人。”
HGS, rebranded from HTMT Global, has a presence in 12 countries including the Philippines, the US, the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Mauritius, the UAE and Jamaica. In India, it has 68 "delivery centres" in Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad and Mumbai as well as in growing cities such as Mysore, Nagercoil, Durgapur, Siliguri and Guntur.
The Hinduja National Power Corp recently acquired Kiran Energy Solar Power for Rs 1,000 crore (108 million) to "augment our presence in the renewable and alternative energy space," Gopi explained.
Gopi解释说：”Hinduja National Power Corp最近以100亿卢比(1.08亿英镑)收购了基兰能源太阳能公司，以“扩大我们在可再生能源和替代能源领域的存在”。
