The secretive hedge fund manager and philanthropist Chris Hohn last year donated almost half a billion pounds to the children’s charity run by his wife, it emerged yesterday.

The £486m gift follows hefty profits at Hohn’s hedge fund TCI in 2007, and beat the previous year’s donation of £276m. The financier has now donated more than £1bn in total, more than the gross domestic product of countries including Greenland and Antigua.

The funds will be given to the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), the charity that Hohn co-founded with his wife Jamie to help children in poor and developing countries, mostly in Africa, Asia and Central America.
