In 2015 it was reported that "Labour’s mystery £600,000 donor named Martin Taylor has been revealed as a Mayfair hedge fund manager after pressure was brought on him and Ed Miliband following publication of a Bureau investigation earlier this week.

"He confirmed his identity tonight, three days after the Bureau published an article highlighting concerns over potential hypocrisy on the part of Labour which had been unable or unwilling to give any details about his background.

"The Bureau can reveal that Labour’s third largest individual cash donor since the last election helps run Nevsky Capital, a hedge fund based near Bond Street in Mayfair, west London.

"It has previously held significant stakes in controversial Russian energy companies Gazprom and Lukoil. And according to its latest filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission in the US, it held $15m of shares in United Health at the end of last year." [1]
