George Soros - Soros Fund ManagementSoros-Style Impact Investing (InSead)
What I really deal with is venture capital without the returns,” Stewart Paperin tells the audience at INSEAD’s Entrepreneurial Forum in Fontainebleau recently. Paperin is administrative vice-president of the worldwide Open Society Foundations and (since 1997) president of the Soros Economic Development Fund which currently manages US$200 million of investment capital covering some 28-projects in seven regions of the world.

Major J.C. Penney Company, Inc. (NYSE:JCP) investor George Soros has decided to side with the company’s chairman and its chief executive officer as they battle an activist investor for influence at the struggling retailer, according to a report from Bloomberg News.

(NYSE:JCP), Soros Fund Management is shunning hedge fund billionaire Bill Ackman’s plan to quickly shake up management at the retailer, Bloomberg says. The J.C. Penney Company, Inc. (NYSE:JCP) board has been embroiled in a vitriolic fight for power over the past week after Ackman leaked a letter that called for the company to replace CEO Mike Ullman, who stepped into the role after his predecessor, Ron Johnson, was fired in April.
