Accountants make Rich List

Accountants strike it rich in 2010

The
Sunday Times Rich List

high in the charts.

ICAEW-qualified Peter Hargreaves, co-founder of Hargeaves Lansdown, comes in
at 111th with a £570m fortune.

family’s Edwardian Group, is placed at 204th with £330m.

Peter Harrison, a chartered accountant from Cheshire, is 327th at £199m. He

New entries include Aref Karim, a charatered accountant whose Quality Capital
