The Most Successful Hedge Fund Manager
There isn’t a hedge fund manager as successful as George Soros. Thanks to his work the Quantum Social Fund has managed to make billions and outperform the rest of the hedge funds consistently for decades. At the top of his game, he wants to do something most in his field do not think of. He wants to use wealth to make the world a better place for those who would like to make their own fortune. While his previous efforts to play a role in politics have disappointed him, he has decided to return regardless. Read his profile at Forbes.
His Return to Politics
George Soros made 2016 the year of his return to politics. He understands more than anyone that there is a need to improve the way that many in the West see the current state of their politics. He decided the best way to do this was to put his support behind Hillary Clinton in her presidential bid. However, this did not turn out the way he wanted it to. Instead, Donald Trump managed to win despite all expectations. Given his heavy investments in fighting Trump, it’s easy to see this was not something he wanted.
The Fight against the Trump Administration
Despite the loss of Hillary Rodham Clinton, Soros wants to do everything he can to make sure that Trump is not able to carry out his agenda. Donald Trump has made it clear he wants to do everything he can to reverse the progress made by the Left and to fight against immigration. Republicans are currently in power in the federal government and they are currently in power in most state governments. Trump wants to help the Left get back into power. Read more on NYTimes.com.
What He Wants To Do Now
The current state of politics simply isn’t in the advantage of the Left. If things continue this way Soros is afraid that we will see the beginning of an entirely new age of authoritarianism. In order to stop this from happening he plans on doing everything he can to stop this from going forward. There is an uphill battle to fight and he is prepared.
