And they are heavily involved in the £300million Saudi takeover bid by Crown Prince Bin Salman of Newcastle United, which is on the verge of being announced.
One big source of their wealth – which has increased by more than £5bn in the past year – is their ownership of Arena Racing Company.
The group owns and operates 16 turf and all-weather racecoures in the UK, accounting for almost half of all fixtures and more than 500 meetings a year.
Notable courses under their ownership include Royal Windsor and Lingfield, as well as Doncaster.
That is site of the world’s oldest classic race, the St Leger, which is held every year in September.
And what better place to watch the action than on their jaw-dropping yacht named Siren?
This 241ft palace on water can accommodate 12 guests in six cabins – and the master bedroom has an amazing fold-out balcony.
There is reported to be a lift onboard to get between the four storeys and one of the most impressive features is the Jacuzzi on the deck.
That is situated near to the helicopter landing pad, from where guests can hop off and go to the onboard gym or watch a movie in the indoor or outdoor cinema.

No wonder Siren won best yacht for its size at the 2009 World Superyachts Awards.
David, believed to be 79, and Simon, thought to be 76, are self-made billionaires.
David started out in scrap metal while Simon made his early money in the carpet business.
After joining forces they struck big in Russia and became known as the ‘metal tsars’, controlling some 5 per cent of the world’s aluminium output through their company Trans-World Metals.
However, a rumoured run-in with the Russian mafia prompted them to sell up and move on.

On their official website, a story detailing the Reuben brothers’ rise to riches says: “They sold the business in 2000 for more than £500m when the Russian mafia became more powerful and as their former business partner Lev Chernoy was being investigated.
“They then set their sights on joining the big players in the British property market – and did it.
“While they’re not willing to open their books or face the media, it is no secret the Reuben brothers are a powerful force.”
There is no denying that, and the Mumbai-born brothers educated in North London make the most of their vast wealth.

The duo have also been linked with the Newcastle takeover.
They are willing to finance part of Amanda Staveley’s bid for control of the Premier League giants.
