The record-setting property is the penthouse at London’s One Hyde Park.
The transaction occured last year, but the buyer’s identity was unknown until now.
Akhmetov is the son of a coal miner, who earned his fortune as a banker and then a steel and mining magnate. In 2009 he bought the West Virginia-based United Coal Company. His estimated net worth is $5.2 billion.
At One Hyde Park, Akhmetov will have access to the luxury amenities of the Mandarin Oriental hotel, which is just next door… Reportedly there’s a tunnel from A to B! Plus, security guards are none other than former SAS members. His new neighbour? Qatari prime minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim, who recently purchased another penthouse in the same development.
