It has been the year of the deal for the BRW Young Rich list. As stockmarket listings get put on the backburner and businesses struggle to get bank finances, the Young Rich are well and truly thriving.
There is a new number one this year, mining entrepreneur Nathan Tinkler. His wealth rises to $610 million from $366 million in 2009, thanks to the bold move of raising $475 million to buy a Queensland coal mine last year and then putting it into the $1.2 billion Aston Resources float in August. Tinkler has made about $400 million on the deal.
Two London hedge fund managers follow Tinkler on the list: Greg Coffey is second with $406 million wealth, while Hillton Nathanson – who negotiated a management buyout of his Marble Bar Asset Management firm – is third with $395 million.

Sydney property developer Shaun Bonett is in fourth position with $360 million wealth. Bonett is the chief executive of Precision Group, which opens retail and commercial properties.
In joint fifth position are Sydney duo Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar with $314 million wealth. That figure is up from $64 million a year ago, thanks to a spectacular deal the pair negotiated with United States venture capitalists in July to take a 16 per cent stake in their software company Atlassian for $US60 million.
