The Wealth of Alex Cowper-Smith

How rich is Alex Cowper-Smith? As of early-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1 million, earned through a successful career in the finance industry. His wealth has also likely been elevated thanks to the success of his ex-wife, as she has an estimated net worth that is over $6 million. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

Alex was raised in England. His childhood was often spent in boarding school for long periods of time, only coming home during the weekends to visit his family. He attended the prestigious co-ed boarding school “Westminster School” in London, known for having their students enter prominent colleges and corporations. The origins of the school dates back to the 12th century and the school has around 750 pupils with the quarter of them borders.

Finance Career

After completing his degree, Cowper-Smith began working as an associate for the financial services company “Goldman Sachs”, which is also an investment bank with its main headquarters in New York. Some of its services include investment management, and asset management, but is one of the largest investment banking enterprises in the world, and a prominent market maker. The company suffered greatly during the 2007-2008 financial crisis leading to an input from the US Department of Treasury which allowed them to bailout financially with the debt repaid a year later.

During his time there, he helped various individuals and businesses on how to invest their money properly, developing his skills and working his way up in the company, eventually leading him to be promoted to a financier position. He became more involved with the banking side of the company, and started managing larger accounts which in turn also increased his net worth significantly. He managed commercial and government clients, handling financial matters, then his work increased to managing debt, funds, mergers, acquisitions, and privatization. The position often had him collaborating with other senior level employees.

Ex-Wife Alice Eve

Alice grew up in a family very familiar with the acting industry, thanks to her parents, actors Sharon Maughan and Trevor Eve. She studied at Beverly Hills Playhouse and participated in numerous student productions during her youth, including “The Importance of Being Earnest”. After completing her education, she started working primarily in BBC television dramas such as “The Rotters’ Club”, then doing comedy films such as “Big Nothing” and “Starter for 10”. Aside from her television and film work, she’s been known to consistently appear in productions, working on “Rock ‘n’ Roll” which earned her a nomination for a Theatregoers’ Choice Awards.

In 2010, she played the Irish nanny of Charlotte in “Sex and the City 2”, before gaining a recurring role in “Entourage” as a journalist and love interest of Vincent Chase. Eventually, she gained one of her most notable roles, in “Star Trek Into Darkness”. A few of her recent projects include “Men in Black 3”, in which she portrayed the younger version of Emma Thompson’s character.

Personal Life

For his personal life, it is known that Alex met Alice while they were attending Westminster, and the two became close friends, eventually dating, but later splitting-up as they grew apart and went to separate schools. She later began a long term relationship with poet Adam O’Riordan whom she met while at Oxford, but they broke up in 2012, and two years later she reconnected with Alex and the two quickly resumed their romance which in turn led to a marriage proposal.

They were married in 2014,in a ceremony held in London’s Brompton Oratory. However, the fairy tale romance they had during that year started to turn sour due to the hectic acting schedule of Eve. They slowly grew apart once more, and in 2017 it was reported that the two had separated, leading to a divorce a few months later. There never had children, and there have been no new relationships reported for either of them since their break-up. One of the reasons why there is very limited information about him is due to the lack of any social media presence. He does not have any personal accounts on any of the major social media websites.

1I'm a girl's girl. I love to hang out with boys - I've got brothers - but I'm a girl's girl, in all the ways you can be girlie. Nails and chats and gossip magazines and reality TV and pop culture... Did going to Oxford and reading "Paradise Lost" change that? No.
2[on cultural differences between the United States and United Kingdom] You know, we're divided by a common language, even though we're meant to have been from the same place. There is a definite shift when I get on the plane and I land. It's very Puritan in America, and it's a different culture in England and much more European in its belief system. In the United States, it's quite strict.
3[on playing Edgar Allan Poe's lover in The Raven (2012)] I did literature at university, so I had a real relationship with poetry, but they don't make many films about the life of a poet. When I read the script, I thought, This is just amazing - because it wasn't indulgent. It allowed itself to have a thrilling aspect.
