Who is Akshata Murty? UK new PM Rishi Sunak's wife and net worth 2022

Newly-appointed UK PM Rishi Sunak's wife Akshata Murty is the daughter of Indian billionaire Narayana Murthy.

Heiress to a fortune worth billions, Akshata Murty came from more humble beginnings.

Thanks largely to his wife, Rishi Sunak will be one of the richest people to become the UK Prime Minister.

Akshata has a 0.93% stake in her father’s Indian software company, Infosys, worth approximately $715 million.

Akshata enjoys a non-domiciled tax status in the UK, indicating she could legally avoid paying taxes on her foreign earnings.

The 42-year-old fashion designer has launched a womenswear brand Akshata Designs.

The couple has an estimated net worth of $830 million, even more than Queen Elizabeth's net worth before she died.

Akshata's total net worth is around $1.2billion – significantly more than King Charles.
