Jim Ratcliffe is founder and CEO of Ineos, one of the largest petrochemical companies in the world. Ratcliffe started working at Esso as a chemicals engineer.


In 1998 he formed Ineos to acquire the former BP site at Antwerp from INSPEC, a company he had previously co-founded. In the next decade Ineos grew rapidly after several acquisitions. Jim Racliffe acquired the unwanted operations from companies as BP and Imperial Chemical Industries (now Akzo Nobel) and used high yield debt to finance the deals. Ratcliffe's biggest acquisition was the GBP 5 billion purchase of BP's Innovene petrochemical operation, giving him refineries in Scotland, Italy, Germany, France, Belgium and Canada. Nowadays Ineos has 15,000 employees and realizes sales of USD 40 billion with 60 manufacturing sites in 13 countries. In 2010 Ratcliffe moved Ineos to Switzerland, saving £100m a year in tax

US$ 6.6 billion net worth

Ratcliffe still owns his previous superyacht Hampshire, which was built as Barbara Jean by Feadship. Jim Ratcliffe has a net worth of US$ 5.4 billion. He resides in Switzerland. Ratcliffe is the founder of Go Run for Fun, a charity inspiring children in the UK to be more active through running events. The GO Run For Fun programme has a very simple aim - to get as many kids between the age of 5 and 10 running as possible.


Racliffe resides in Switzerland and owns a house in Chelsea. He also has a New Forest beach house, which he has recently applied to demolish and replace with a contemporary £4?million carbon-neutral mansion that can be raised on hydraulic stilts to protect it from potential rising sea levels. The house would only be visible from boats on the Solent.
