However, settlement was recorded in a draft judgment and could be altered before final publication on December 12. Chris Hohn, 48,  and Jamie Cooper, 49,  were married for 17 years and have four children. They hold a family fortune in the realm of $1.3 billion. The ex-couple founded Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), a juggernaut of a private charity that has a investment fund worth roughly $4 billion. During debate in court, Hohn argued that his talents in moneymaking counted as a special contribution to the marriage and entitled his wife to a quarter and not a half of the sum. Hohn got his MBA at Harvard where he met his ex-wife. Before the split, Hohn steered more than $2 billion to the charity including some 800 million pounds in 2007 and 2008, making him one of the U.K.’s largest charitable donors.
