Sir David and Sir Frederick Barclay (both born 27 October 1934), commonly referred to as the "Barclay brothers", are British businessmen. The identical twin brothers have very substantial business interests primarily in media, retail and property. They have earned a reputation for avoiding publicity, and are often described as reclusive.
The Sunday Times Rich List of 2017 estimated their wealth at £7.2 billion.
Sir David Barclay's son, Aidan, manages their UK businesses which are accused of tax avoidance, by placing assets under ownership of companies registered abroad and controlled through trusts. Their Press Holdings company owns Apollo magazine and The Spectator, and through a wholly owned subsidiary (Press Acquisitions Limited) they also own Telegraph Group Limited, parent company of The Daily Telegraph and The Sunday Telegraph.
