LONDON: A rich British £14billion Britian tycoon reportedly has a very shocking life philosophy when it comes to his wealth and lifestyle.

His identity is such a mystery, that its said even his own receptionist would have a hard time knowing his name.

This man in question is 56-year-old Michael Platt, but despite his net worth he likes to live life under the radar.

For those unversed, Mr Platt is connected to an investment firm named BlueCrest Capital Management, which he co-founded alongside businessman William Reeves.

This hedge fund offers a more unique approach and serves as a personal investment option, when compared to many other external facing options.

This fund deals mainly with its employees as well as senior partners and has even garnered quite a lot for Mr Platt himself.

However, despite his financial success, the billionaire is known for being rather hush hush when it comes to interviews, or finding himself infront of a paparazzi shot.

Mr Platt’s introduction to the investment landscape started at the tender age of 14 when he managed to enter the investment world with £500 in birthday money from his grandma.

He is also an alumnus of the London School of Economics and made over £30,000 by investing at the time as well.

As of right now it’s known that the only time Mr Platt considers himself having lost money was back in October of 1987 due to the financial crash.

It was after that point that he joined JP Morgan and then later co-founded BlueCrest, more than a decade afterwards.

There aren’t many public interviews available either, one of the only times Mr Platt and his buisness partner had a sit-down chat was back in 2006 with The Times, but he refused to be photographed throughout the entire thing, and even led its financial editor Patrick Hosking admit, “They guard their privacy fiercely and detest their regular appearances in newspaper rich lists.”
