Curious about George Soros’ best quotes? A Hungarian-born American businessman, a successful investor and a philanthropist, George Soros is one of the most well-known economic minds in the world. Born on the 12th of August in 1930, Soros, who is now 82 years old, founded the iconic Soros Fund Management in 1969.
Born in Hungry, Soros immigrated to England in 1947. He attended London Business School with the help of his Uncle and completed his Bachelor’s of Science in 1952. Soros worked for F. M. Mayer as an arbitrage trader between 1956 and 1959, for Wertheim & Co as an analyst for next four years until 1963 and served with Arnhold & S. Bleichroeder before founding his own firm six years later.
In the autumn of 1988, Stanley Druckenmiller joined Soros Fund Management. As investors, Soros and Druckenmiller were the ideal fit; together they bet correctly on the collapse of the British pound in the early nineties, and Soros’ bet on the Thai baht at the time of the Asian Financial Crisis of 1997 was very well-timed. After giving close to $8 billion to charity, it’s estimated that Soros still holds a net worth of nearly $20 billion according to most estimates.
