A host of City faces pop up in the Queen’s birthday honours list

THERE were several familiar City faces popping up on the Queen’s birthday honours list this year.

CQS hedgie and Tory donor – not to mention former City A.M. trader of the year – Michael Hintze was among those on the thousand-long list being honoured.

Also knighted were prominent chairmen Dick Olver from BAE Systems, John Lewis chair Charlie Mayfield and chairman of Sequoia Capital Michael Moritz, who was made a KBE. Two City figures ­– head of UK investment at Invesco Perpetual Neil Woodford and Renshaw Bay head William Winters – were each awarded a CBE. MBEs went to entrepreneurs Holly Tucker and Sophie Cornish who founded online bespoke shopping firm Not on the High Street.
