British billionaire James Matthews made headlines in 2016 when he got engaged with Pippa Middleton, sister of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge. But his high-profile relationship isn’t the only interesting thing about him. This man is also skilled entrepreneur who amassed incredible fortune and currenly runs investment advisory firm. As of 2016, Matthews has an estimated net worth over £2 billion ($2.6 billion).
James comes from the good famile and he studied at prestigious Eton College. Some of England’s most well connected businessmen and politicians have a college degree from Eton. There’s no doubt about that… both Matthews and Middletons are part of English high society. Matthews owns private jet Pilatus PC-12 that costs around £3 million ($4 million). As a hedge fund executive, Matthews certainly has his pick of women but Pippa is also a very desirable gal.
Matthews and Middleton started dating in 2012 but broke up after brief romance. However, they reunited in 2015 and stayed together ever since. He proposed her parents in old fashioned way in summer 2016. The engagement ring allegedly cost him £250,000. His age is slightly higher than his girlfriend. James is 40 years old. His brother is a reality television star Spencer Matthews. Can you believe that?
