The Sunday Times Rich List 2015 is the 27th annual survey of the wealthiest people resident in the United Kingdom, published by The Sunday Times on 26 April 2015.[1]

The Guardian reported that the collective wealth of Britain’s 1,000 richest people had more than doubled in the last 10 years with a combined fortune of just over £547bn and a fortune of £100m was now required to qualify for the list.[2]

This year's list marked the first year Queen Elizabeth II was not among the list's top 300 most wealthy since the list began in 1989.[3]
