George Soros was clearly a visionary and motivated man at an early age as he was able to put himself through the prestigious London School of Economics, whereas working as a waiter and a railway porter. This is what gave him a great head start in the finance sector and he was able to kick-start his career in the field of finance at some merchant bank. It was later that George Soros was able to move to New York and joined Wall Street where he has created immense wealth over the years. As early as 1969, George had already established his remarkable hedge fund with an astounding $12million. George Soros would later make great trading decisions such as the shorting of the British pound in 1992 that earned him a lot of profits, thereby earning him the title of the man who shook the Bank of England.George Soros has dominated this investing field over the years as his Soros Fund Management boasts of $30 billion as its asset base.
The secret behind Soros domination over the years has been harnessing knowledge by hiring the best qualified personalities in Wall Street to man his funds. This is especially true after he hired Dawn Fitzpatrick, a woman of repute in Wall Street who has been able to successfully run the affairs of Soros Fund Management as the chief investment officer. This is the main secret to having a sustained track record over the years, having the best people to run the affairs of his investment portfolio.George has always supported great political ideals that he believes in such as his $27 million spending that was targeted towards ousting President George W. Bush in the elections of 2004. It was then that he scaled back from political support until recently when he donated $25 million to the Hillary Clinton campaign as well as other Democratic candidates.
George has always been a great and consistent donor to the Democratic causes that favored his interests towards issues such as immigration reform, religious tolerance and criminal justice reforms. George Soros has a big impact on other rich philanthropists who are joining his course towards the Democrats campaign. This support was essential for the Clinton campaign as it thrust her team to an advantage over those committees that were behind Donald Trump.The investments from George Soros to the Clinton campaign was very strategic towards achieving certain key goals, such as $5million that was committed to the Immigrant Voters win that sought to increase the voter turnout in those Hispanic voter’s states. These states were mainly the swing states that would purposely have a great impact to the victory of Hillary Clinton. Other funds were committed towards neutralizing conservative efforts that would have otherwise restricted voting.
