Bloomberg News reports that the award is less than the 50% share of the $1.3bn in assets that Cooper-Hohn had been seeking.
Chris Hohn had requested as much as 75% of the estate, arguing that he had made a “special contribution” to the family’s wealth. Judge Jennifer Roberts, who said she would release her ruling next month, didn’t explain the reasons for the amounts.
Cooper-Hohn’s share of the estate includes a share of a pension, a house in Connecticut and about $493m in cash, her lawyer, Martin Pointer said in court, quoting from the decision distributed to the parties.
Roberts has said the case is the largest to reach London - which has been called the “divorce capital” of Europe because of large awards to non-working spouses.
