George Soros is one of the most successful investors and hedge fund managers in history. During his 50 year career owning and managing Soros Funds, he has managed over $100 billion in capital and consistently provided attractive returns to investors. Due to his success of managing the hedge funds, and investing his own capital, George Soros has built a net worth in excess of $25 billion. This fortune has allowed him to be consistently named one of the wealthiest individuals in the world for the past 20 years.
Outside of his professional career, Soros has also been very involved and outspoken in regards to a variety of social and political issues on Forbes. Over the past year, he was outspoken about the crisis in Syria and applauded Germany for being open with new immigrants and refugees coming into the country. At the same time, Soros was open about his disapproval with the United States and other international leaders on Snopes not showing the same support for the refugees seeking a new home.
Soros was also heavily involved in a number of political issues and events affecting the world. Most recently, Soros was one of the key contributors to the Democratic party during the 2016 election in the United States on Politico. Soros was a strong and openly outspoken supporter of Hillary Clinton during both the primaries and general election. He directly donated over $25 million to the Clinton campaign and has also been credited for encouraging other wealthy individuals to contribute as well.
This is not the first time that Soros was involved in the US political process. During the 2004 election, he was heavily involved in supporting the campaigns on discoverthenetworks.org that were aiming to unseat George W Bush from the White House. Then, in 2008, he was very supportive of Hillary Clinton during the primaries, in which she ultimately lost to Barack Obama.
After the results of the 2016 election were announced, George Soros immediately started the process of building the future of the Democratic party. Soros organized an emergency meeting in Washington DC just a few days after Trump was announced the winner of the election. At the meeting, Soros led discussions about what factors affected the election, what the future of the party is, and what needs to be done to ensure that the Democratic Party is able to regain control of the House and Senate and then win back the White House in 2020. The meeting was attended by a number of top political officials and contributors. Thanks
