Briton Roger Jenkins, 66, works as a financier. Diana Jenkins, the newest Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, is his ex-wife. Diana Jenkins leads an opulent lifestyle, as has come to be anticipated from those that appear on RHOBH.
According to reports, Miss Jenkins’ enormous wealth was largely the result of a divorce deal in which Roger Jenkins paid her $250 million (£199 million).
Between 1973 and 1978, Mr. Jenkins competed as a sprinter for Scotland and Great Britain, representing them at the 1974 European Games and the 1978 Commonwealth Games. At the Olympics in Munich in 1972, his brother David won a silver medal in the 4×400 metre relay.
Roger Jenkins’ sprinting career ended long ago, but he has since gone on to amass wealth comparable to Usain Bolt’s.
Many people are curious about how Jenkins made his money and how much he is worth because he appears to have sponsored the wealth displayed in Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
What is Roger Jenkins’ Net Worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth.com, his current net worth is $64 million, or $80 million.
Jenkins began working with Barclays as a graduate trainee in 1978, following his graduation from Heriot-Watt University. Jenkins advanced quickly; he held the position of head of private placements from 1982 to 1984 before departing to join Kleinwort Benso as director and co-chief of financial markets in 1987.
After rejoining Barclays in 1994, Jenkins began to earn the kind of money that would justify a $250 million divorce settlement.
Jenkins reportedly made £40 million annually between 2005 and 2009, making him the highest paid banker in the City of London. He was named the Middle East’s Executive Chairman of Barclays Investment Banking and Investment Management in 2008.
Jenkins departed Barclays in 2008 and reportedly received a £50 million exit payment, according to the Financial Times.
Later, he held positions at BTG Pactual and Elkstone Capital. Jenkins increased net worth in 2016 by investing in a fund to buy a cannabis cultivation facility in Northern California.
Jenkins has amassed enormous money through these decades of success, but three divorces, including his $250 million split with Diana, have eaten into his fortune.
It appears that money made by Barclays Bank in the early 2000s is now being used to purchase Beverly Hills residences and margaritas. However, Mr. Jenkins receiving $80 million is hardly a cause for complaint.
