Odey Asset Management’s founder is thrilled to see the U.K. vote to leave the EU. And not just because he and the chickens he houses in a sandstone temple cast their votes in such a direction. But also because it made him a cool £220 million.

As many in the City nursed heavy losses, staunch Leave supporter Crispin Odey declared: ‘I think I may be the winner….’

The 57-year-old, who manages more than £8 billion and has an estimated personal fortune of £900 million, revealed that in the run-up to the vote he had invested heavily in gold, a safe haven amid market turmoil, and bet on the pound falling against the dollar.
