GEORGE SOROS runs Soros Fund Management with its flagship vehicle, Quantum Fund, a Curaçao-based investment firm headquartered in Manhattan. Quantum gained 68.6% in 1992 and 61.5% in 1993, and has $6 billion in net assets. Quantum Fund also spawned several other very successful funds. In addition to being a master financier, George Soros sponsors major philanthropic efforts under the umbrella of The Soros Foundations, which operate in 22 countries and spend hundreds of millions of dollars annually.From AudioFile:
A fabulous investor, Soros is also a remarkably accessible teacher. He tells you he's really a philosopher who finds more pleasure in his abstractions than in making money, and he knows how to make his abstractions impressively clear. You hear them and, right away, the light goes on. It's also fascinating to hear Soros tell us that his relationships with people suffered when he was fully connected to the market and that he relied on backaches to direct his attention to impending market problems. Read by a pro, this is content that will inform admirers of Soros's achievements and fascinate people interested in Soros as an individual.
