Confidence rating:

Currie's fortune derives from his minority stake in closely held Ineos, one of the world's largest chemical producers. The London-based company is valued based on a calculation of the group's average Ebitda and the average enterprise value-to-Ebitda multiple of three publicly traded peer companies: BASF, LyondellBasell Industries and Saudi Basic Industries.

The Ebitda figure used in this analysis has been calculated by Bloomberg from the five-year average Ebitda of subsidiary Ineos Group Holdings between 2015 and 2019. This average is 16% higher than the subsidiary's 2019 unadjusted Ebitda figure. The same increase has been applied to the group's calculated Ebitda figure for 2019 to approximate the group's five-year average Ebitda figure. The calculation was updated to reflect the company's 2019 results on May 13, 2020, which resulted in a $800 million gain in Currie's net worth on that date.

The company reports production output of 60 million tonnes and revenue of about $60 billion, and has 22,000 employees working at 183 sites in 26 countries, according to its website.

Richard Longden, a spokesperson for Ineos, didn't respond to an emailed request for comment on Currie's net worth.
