George Soros fled his native country of Hungary and headed to London, England. It is there that his journey into finance and economics began. Self motivated and self reliant from the beginning, he worked both as a porter and as a waiter to fund his education in economics as stated in a recent Forbes article. From there he got his financial start working in a merchant bank, moved to New York and founded his first hedge fund in 1969. Over the following decades he amassed a fortune which now is roughly 30 billion dollars and is overseen through is Soros Fund Management group. After many years, he is still actively involved in overseeing his portfolio and trading and what George Soros knows.

The real impact that Mr. Soros has had on the world is not in the building of his fortune, but rather how he has used his wealth to better the lives of other. He has always been a staunch supporter of liberal causes and ideals. With this in mind he has used his wealth and influence to push liberal causes and ideals and champion those in the political arena who share his views. He has been a political friend of Hillary Clinton for years, though he backed President Obama over his long time friend. His disappointment with Obama cause him to lessen his political activity but the rise of Donald Trump and the growing social discord has prompted his return to funding many liberal pacts and ideals. His philanthropic giving never faltered, however, during the time that he stepped back from politics. As stated in the politico article which discusses his return to the political sphere, he has been a part of philanthropic work through his foundations, which have donated more than 13 billion dollars over the course of his lifetime to help defend human rights, promote the democratic process in throughout Europe, and provide access to health care and education in the U.S. and abroad and contact him.
