Bill Gates' s Profile & Performance

Profile

Bill Gates is one of the smartest businessmen in the world. He founded Microsoft and grew it to the world's largest software maker and monopolized the PC world. Bill Gates was the richest man for 15 consecutive years.

Warren Buffett once said that Bill Gates can do what he does and he cannot do what Bill Gates does. Bill Gates now sits on the board of Berkshire Hathaway, and owns a few percent of Berkshire shares. The portfolio we track here before June 2009 is called Cascade Investment, which is the personal portfolio of Bill Gates. The portfolio is managed by Michael Larson

Edit: Since June 2009, the portfolio we track is for Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust. It is still managed by Michael Larson
