Source of Wealth:Internet (Sequoia Capital)
Moritz, the Welsh-born star of California's private-equity firmament, sold two businesses that his firm, Sequoia Capital, had backed in 2010, raising £940m. Moritz put £8m of Sequoia's money into the fledgling Google operation in 1999. That stake rose to be worth £6.3 billion. In its 2011 list of world billionaires, Forbes puts Moritz at £1,125m. We knock off the £25m he donated to Christ Church, his Oxford college, in 2008.
