George Soros is one of the most powerful hedge fund managers on earth. Born into a Hungarian Jewish family in 1930, Soros has vivid memories of the German occupation of his home country during World War II.

Soros graduated with both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in philosophy from London School of Economics in 1954 as seen on Biography.
