Meet The Billionaires : Chapter 1

Words By: James Montague Produced By: Philippe Fenner

As part of our Meet The Billionaires series, James Montague details the history of Chelsea Football Club owner, Roman Abramovich. While many of Russia’s oligarchs lost their wealth when Vladimir Putin became the Russian president, Abramovich maintained his. This video explains how he made his fortune, how he kept it, and speculates on why he bought Chelsea, other than for the fact that he was “bored”.
