PHOTO: Divorce Judge Demands Real Worth Of 'Africa's Youngest Billionaire' After Claiming He Now Worth A Lot Less

Ashish Thakkar
Ashish Thakkar is sometimes referred to in the media as Africa's youngest billionaire. But now he is saying he is worth a lot less, reports Bloomberg.

The news service reports he said in the divorce court he is worth just £445,532 ($544,000).

It goes on to say that his wife is arguing he has a lot more money. And now a London family court judge has denied his request for a final divorce decree until the court knows his real worth.

Bloomberg calculates his net worth at $425m.

That's based on his disclosed public and closely held assets. But the story says he has a "complex web of offshore assets".

Mr Thakkar has made no comment.

The 35-year-old started in business importing computers from Dubai to Uganda and went on to co-found banking conglomerate Atlas Mara with ex-Barclays boss Bob Diamond.
