There are few things in life that remain certain but the ability of Sir Peter Rigby to top the wealth charts in the channel has been a constant over the last few years.
The founder of Specialist Computer Holdings appears regularly in the Sunday Times Rich list and cropped up again in the latest edition, which came out yesterday, with a value of £480m.
His wealth does not come just from SCH but also his airplane and hotel businesses, which he has particularly invested in over the last few years.
Sir Peter Rigby was given the MicroScope Awards for Channel Excellence lifetime achievement award in 2009 in recognition of his contribution to the channel.
The Rich List included other familiar names from the tech sector, including Sir Alan Sugar who is worth £770m, founder of Autonomy Software Mike Lynch who was valued at £396m and InTechnology founder Peter Wilkinson, who isn't going short with £302m.
