How did Rishi Sunak build up his net worth? 

Before going into politics and being in charge of the UK economy, Mr Sunak used to work for the US investment bank Goldman Sachs.

He then moved into hedge fund management, where he eventually set up his own firm, Theleme Partners, in 2010.

In 2019, he registered a blind trust after being appointed chief secretary to the Treasury by former Chancellor Sajid Javid.

The trust is said to contain a multi-million pound fortune.
