The Barclay Brothers
The most-widely-named investment vehicle of the secretive brothers is Ellerman Investments, which also owns a large chunk of US retailer Sears, the Ritz, 15% of Ocean Diamond Mining, a chunk of Internet investment company JellyWorks, around 75% of biotechnology company Trigen... and in 2002 bought a big chunk of UK retailer and catalogue Littlewoods.
Since Ellerman and associated companies are, in the jargon, 'closely held' (that is, do not offer shares to the public) they don't even have to file accounts. All information gratefully received.
Buying the Telegraphs and the Spectator from Hollinger, unless Conrad Black succeeds in his July 2004 bid to stop the deal.
(Excuse the dreadful grammar below, but they're the only plural owner on the database.)
