James Stunt Net Worth $7 Billion
James Stunt was brought up in a middle-class family in his hometown by his father, Geoffrey Stunt, who works as a publishing director, and his mother, Lorraine Stunt. Other information about his early life and education is unknown to the media.
James’ private life is largely unknown, but his immensely successful career has also been a topic of tabloid magazines, as James was never been interviewed, as he tends to keep his whole career private. Nevertheless, James has earned his vast fortune through successful investments; when he was 21 years old, he managed to invest a few millions in the shipping business, focusing on cargo vessels from the 1980s. Little by little his kingdom began to expand, as China was in need of steel, which James used to earn money, and from being worth $2-3 million, he sold his vessels for $10-15 million, which added a considerable amount to his net worth.
After that, James entered the gaming industry, making a large Betfair bet which has been credited as one of the largest in the gaming history, and after that he invested in the mining industry, real estate and several other successful business ventures, which increased his net worth by a large margin.
His vast net worth reflects in his lifestyle; he owns a large collection of cars which includes five Rolls Royces, three Lamborghinis, two Mercedes Gullwings and a Ferrari 250 LM, and he also owns a villa worth $150 million. Other than that, he is an avid collector of wines – apparently he has the largest collection of Petrus, Le Pin, and Romanee-Conti wines. Furthermore, he is also known for his collection of Modern Art, and Old Masters Paintings, owning artworks of such artists as Monet, Picasso, Degas, etc.
When it comes to speak about his personal life, James Stunt married Petra Ecclestone, a daughter of billionaire Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone, in August of 2011, at a lavish ceremony in a medieval castle – “Castello Odescalchi” in Bracciano, Italy; they welcomed their first child, a daughter, two years later.
