Who is Akshata Murty? All About The Wife Of UK Prime Minister

Akshata Murty, the wife of British Prime Minister-designate Rishi Sunak, is estimated to have a net worth of $1.2 billion. It is surprising to know that the net worth of the prime minister’s wife is speculated to be much more than that of King Charles III which is only around $600 million.

Who is Akshata Murty

Akshata Murty is the daughter of Indian billionaire, Narayana Murthy. Narayana Murthy is the founder of Infosys which is the second-largest multinational IT company in India and one of the most successful tech-venture in India.

As per the reports, Infosys, which started out with an initial capital of $250 is worth more than $60 billion as of 2022. Narayana Murthy, who is the father of Akshata Murty and the founder of the company has been included on the list of 12 greatest entrepreneurs of our time and was also described as the ‘Father of Indian IT Sector’ by the Times magazine. 

With the chances of Rishi Sunak becoming the Prime Minister of the UK strengthened, his family has also been put under tight scrutiny. Earlier there was a controversy regarding the status of his wife Akshata Murty as a non-domicile UK resident and the amount of tax that she pays to the government. It was said that she was using her status as a non-domicile UK resident to defend her earnings from ventures in India and save money without paying the tax. Later she agreed to pay extra taxes based on the allegations. 

The major share of Akshata’s wealth comes from the IT empire bought by her father. According to reports, Akshata Murty holds a share of just 0.91 percent in her family business, but the share she holds is reportedly around $720 million. Even though she is known as a fashion designer, the fashion label which was started by her did not reach success as it was expected. Unable to fulfill the expectations, the label was closed down after three years of its establishment. 

Akshata Murthy

Currently, Akshata Murty is listed as the director of three different ventures in her LinkedIn profile. The first one is Catamaran Ventures which is a capital and private equity firm. She has been the director of the venture since May 2013 and she is the only shareholder and director of Britain’s branch. The company is based in Bengaluru, India, and describes itself as ‘a catalyst for creating innovative enterprises in India’. The second company is the famous high-end menswear dealer New & Lingwood, which also includes the name of Akshata Murty as one of their directors. Soroco is an IT venture co-founded by her brother Rohan Murty. Akshata Murty is also the director of the UK subsidiary of Soroco. She is also said to be the director of Digme fitness, which is also a UK-based company. Akshata Murty is speculated to own around 4.4 percent stake in the company.
