One Direction could double their worth
One Direction's worth is expected to double in value by next year.
'The X Factor' 2010 rejects have been raking in funds recently helped by an album that went to number one in 16 countries and a DVD that topped the charts in 25 places.
Sony Music UK's boss revealed that Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles - who are signed to Simon Cowell's Syco in Britain and Columbia in America - are already worth Â£32million.
Nick Gatfield said: 'We fully expect to double that Â£32million figure next year.
'The team around them, including musicians, stylists, producers, tour managers and so on, is 90-strong,' he continues. That's 90 jobs created by these five boys.'
Louis, 20, bought Â£2.5million, five-bedroom house in North London, while Zayn, 19, recently snapped up a Â£2.2million property.
Harry, 18, spent Â£575,000 on an East London residence.
The group is planning on blowing some of their cash by betting on the sweepstake on the Euro 2012 football tournament.
Liam, 18, confirmed: 'We're all in a sweepstake with the crew as to who's gonna win Euro 2012.'
