Jaime Botin Net Worth
Jaime Botin Net Worth: Jaime Botin is a Spanish banker who has a net worth of $1.7 billion. Jaime Botin, the Executive Chairman of Spain's Grupo Santander, entered the billionaire rankings earlier this year. He did rise to riches thanks to his 23.3% stake in Bankinter S.A., one of the largest banks in Spain, which he holds through his company Cartival S.A. Despite of the surge in his net worth, Botin found himself in hot water for hiding part of his stake from the Spanish authorities that made him pay almost $1 million. Born to a family that has been involved in banking for decades, it was Botin's great grandfather who founded Banco Santander, another high-ranking bank in the country. Botin was 52 when he got the chance to take over the lead over Banco Santander as president in 1986. However, he was not the only one to preside over the bank as his grandfather, father, and brother Emilio have all served as its presidents for some time. Married with five kids, Jaime Botin resides in Spain's capital Madrid.
