Rob Defares and Wiet Pot, both at the helm of IMC Financial Markets, will make a great jump on the list of richest men in the country.
Forget the traders with a few million, Defares and Pot are in another league. On the annual Quote 500 rich list of Dutch citizens, Defares used to be estimated at a net worth of €490 million (2014). Last year he ranked number 27.
Ten spots below Defares we used to find Wiet Pot with €410 million. Both estimates are very modest, as recently both men could divide €312 million on dividend from IMC – in just two years (€160m over 2013, €152m over 2014).
