George Soros was born in Hungary but fled the country to go to London where he pursued a degree in Economics. Before kicking off his career in Finance, he worked as a waiter and a railway porter. It was thereafter that he shifted to New York and founded Wall Street and his own hedge fund in 1969 worth $12 million. The fund’s name would later change to Quantum Fund. Soros partnered with Stan Druckenmiller in 1992 in shorting the British pound from which he got not only a substantial amount of profit but also fame around the world. Currently, George is still doing well in business with the Soros Fund Management, which is worth $30 billion. In attempt to run his investment portfolio, George employed Dawn Fitzpatrick, a much respected woman in business, to serve as the Chief Investment Officer.

With the nationalist politicians putting him and his fortune in sight, George Soros, who is now past eighty years, is back on the forefront of the current ideological struggle. The nationalist men have also laid blockade to the liberal democratic structure, which was much successful during the cold war. George has vast experience in such battles, having suffered against authoritarianism throughout his life: such battles include the pro-Nazi Hungarian regime during the time he was born. After moving to America, where he made his riches, Soros feared about his initiative to equip universities and colleges with copy machines. After that, it was only obvious that George Soros would want to be high flying, with involvement in the Warsaw Pact and ex-USSR.
