David Richwhite

Net Worth : $660 Million

Native to New Zealand, David Richwhite was born in 1948. For a long time, he had a partnership with Sir Michael Fay in Fay, Richwhite & Company. He initially attended the University of Otago and studied commerce. Over the 1980s and 1990s, he helped New Zealand to restructure their inquiry. Despite his work with the government, his company was the focus of the Winebox Inquiry. This inquisition targeted tax-haven and avoidance measures the company used to lower their tax costs. Due to the negative publicity surrounding this inquiry, significant ill-will remains between the public and Fay, Richwhite & Company.
