The Guardian reported – In a footnote to his entry in the register, Sunak announced that among many direct shareholdings owned by his wife Akshata Murthy is a minority shareholding in Koru Kids, a pilot scheme to encourage people to become childminders. One of the six companies involved in Sunak’s full entry for family interests says: Prime Minister’s wife is a venture capital investor. She is the owner of a venture capital investment company, Catamaran Ventures UK Limited, and holds several direct shareholdings. It links to a footnote, which mentions a stake in Coru Kids. The UK prime minister is being investigated by the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner, Daniel Greenberg, over whether he properly declared his wife’s shareholding.
