Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe's investment portfolio soars by £10million to £89.2million
HARRY Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has had a magic year with money — as his investment portfolio soared by an extra £10million.
The actor’s firm is now worth £89.2million, after he ploughed cash into art, rare books, stocks and property.
Canny Daniel, 32, spreads his outlays with the help of a team including parents Marcia and Alan.
Daniel, who last played Harry in 2011, is a fan of authors including Ernest Hemingway and Salman Rushdie and likes to buy first-editions.
He has also snapped up works by artists including Damien Hirst and Craigie Aitchison.
Accounts filed this month by Gilmore Jacobs Ltd, of which Daniel owns just under half the shares, also show it has £3.1m in property, plus £10.3m of cash reserves.
He told how his money is handled by advisers “who understand finances a lot more than me.”
The star, 12 when the first Potter film was released, told Forbes finance magazine: “I was obviously very fortunate financially from very, very early on.

Emma, who played Hermione Granger, said she felt “quite overwhelmed” as “some of us haven’t seen each other for years.”
She added: “I’ve just been quite pleasantly surprised by getting to relive it all. ”
