After nearly four decades and achieving unprecedented returns for a 26-year stretch through his Quantum Fund, George Soros has moved on to devote the majority of his time to philanthropic efforts. Though he closed his then-$25.5 billion Soros Fund Management LLC to outside investors in 2011 to avoid registering with the SEC, he still has a hand in its management of his and his family’s wealth.

In the third quarter, Soros’ fund purchased 91 new stocks and at quarter end held a total of 232 stocks which have an aggregate fair value of $9.14 billion. The amount of turnover from the previous quarter was 24%.
