Why Follow George Soros’s Portfolio?
George Soros solidified his status in the investing Hall of Fame in 1992 with the trade that gave him the title “the man who broke the Bank of England.” Taking on a major federal reserve bank and winning while making over $1 billion personally will do that for you.
Now at age 87 and with a net worth around $23 billion, he stands as the 19th richest person in the United States and 29th richest in the world. His philanthropic organization, the Open Society Foundations, supports democracy and human rights in more than 100 countries.
Soros has often attributed much of his investing success to his Theory of Reflexivity. The key idea behind the theory is that markets are battling two realities; Objective Realities and Subjective realities. Markets reflect beliefs that directly affect the underlying fundamentals and fundamentals, in turn, form the basis for beliefs. This feedback loop sometimes causes prices and expectations to diverge from reality drastically.
“Markets are constantly in a state of uncertainty and flux and money is made by discounting the obvious and betting on the unexpected.“
