George Soros' s Profile & Performance

Profile

George Soros is known for the unmatched success of his Quantum Fund. A hedge fund guru, he is recognized for having the best performance record of any investment fund in the world over its 26-year history. A mere $1000 invested in 1969 when Soros established the Quantum Fund would have been worth $4 million by the year 2000. During that time he achieved a cumulative 32% annual return.

Investing Philosophy

His basic theory of investing is that financial markets are chaotic. The prices of stocks, bonds and currencies depend on the human beings who buy and sell them, and those traders often act out of highly emotional reactions rather than coolly logical calculations. Opportunities can be found by carefully studying the value and the market prices of assets. He focuses on a theory of "reflexivity," which is based on the premise that individual investor biases affect market transactions and the economy.

» More George Soros Articles
George Soros is a Hungarian-American financier, businessman, and notable philanthropist who have contributed $7 billion to various causes since 1979. He became known as "the Man Who Broke the Bank of England" after he made a reported $1 billion during the 1992 Black Wednesday UK currency crises. Soros returned an average of 30.5% per year between 1969 and 2000. Now, he is very active in supporting various political causes through organizations, the press, and supporting politicians. Currently Soros Fund Management has 727 stocks worth $6.42 billion as of 5/20 2011. In 2010, Forbes lists Soros as the Forbes list of billionaires 35th richest person in the world, and the 14th richest person in America, with a net worth estimated at US$14.2 billion.

Soros focuses on supporting liberal ideals and causes and developed a philosophy of reflexivity based on the ideas of Karl Popper. Reflexivity, as used by Soros, is the belief that the action of beholding the valuation of any market, by its participants, affects said valuation of the market in a "virtuous or vicious" circle. Soros began to apply his ideas on reflexivity to investing, using it to predict, among other things, the emergence of financial bubbles. His philosophies as he put them in his books have included, "My approach works not by making valid predictions but by allowing me to correct false ones… The secret to my success is that I know that I will be wrong. I consider it a strength to admit my mistakes. That allows me to stay in the game and fight another day."

In 1967, Soros helped establish an offshore investment fund. In 1973, he set up a private investment firm that eventually evolved into the Quantum Fund, one of the first hedge funds. He is a strong supporter of the Democratic Party and has funded many politicians including Barack Obama and John Kerry and media outlets over the years.

One of Soros’ long-time goals has been to subvert the national anti-drug policy of the U.S. Government, to move away from the use of national and global law enforcement resources against the drug trade, he calls this “harm reduction.” In 2010, he donated $1 million in support of Proposition 19, which would have legalized marijuana in the state of California. Soros has also been reportedly purchased a major stake in one of Colombia’s biggest banks, at a time when the Drug Enforcement Administration, in its study, “Colombian Economic Reform: The Impact on Drug Money Laundering within the Colombian Economy,” was documenting how major drug kingpins were taking advantage of the liberalization of the economy to put illicit drug revenue into legitimate businesses. The report stated: “U.S. and Colombian Government authorities have evidence of drug proceeds being deposited in every major bank in Colombia… A Colombian source indicated that many banks and businesses are owned covertly by principal members of the Cali cartel.”

In late 2009, Soros assembled 25 economists, financiers, and journalists in Bedford, New York to brainstorm the idea. This Summit resulted in a “unanimous agreement that our economic paradigm must change,” and a “recognition of the importance of empowering the young generation of economists to rethink” the field of economics. In the end, the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) was created as a nonprofit foundation in October 2009; its initial funding came from a $50 million pledge by Soros's Open Society Institute.

I find that the information at this site is often contradictory and often just incorrect. I'm surprised more people do not comment on these issues. In addition, I see where you upload what you think an organization has purchased but I haven't seen where you upload the securities that the organization shorts. I won't explain why this is important. You don't have an editor that check the facts. I am amazed that people actually pay for this service.
