Loy­alty Cards, £160m

Sir Keith Mills, who or­gan­ised the Invictus Games and was the deputy chair­man on the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee for the Lon­don Olympics, was born in Brent­wood. He made his money from loy­alty cards

— first Air Miles taken over by BA in 1994 and later the Nec­tar card which he sold in 2007 net­ting £160m. He re­cently set­tled a claim against Coutts Bank where he had £73m of his wealth tied up in AIG bonds, and had been seek­ing £8m in dam­ages. His other as­sets in­clude around £2m of com­pany as­sets and a re­cent £2.5m in­vest­ment in video mes­sag­ing app Wordea. We value Mills at £160m for now.
