Ferguson started his own company aged 16 supplying containers for North Sea businesses. He turned it into Aberdeenshire's Ferguson Group, which provided containers, chemical tanks and even living accommodation for the oil and gas industry. Monaco resident Ferguson, 57, sold up to Australian giant Brambles for £320m in 2014, just before the oil price collapsed, and should have made £250m.
