Billionaire George Soros is one of the most famous investors of our time. Soros has been around long enough to have seen it all, starting his investment career in 1954 and forming Soros Fund Management, one of the largest and most successful hedge funds. Through the hedge fund, he turned $12 million in seed funding into over $20 billion. His hedge fund, Soros Fund, deploys a multi-pronged approach to generate returns for the billionaire investor.

Between 1970 and 2000, while actively managing the hedge fund, Soros averaged returns of 30% annually, affirming his status as one of the most successful portfolio managers. The stellar performance stems from Soros going against the grain on the belief that market prices are never efficient but distorted most of the time.

"My interpretation of financial markets directly contradicts the efficient market hypothesis which has been the prevailing theory about financial markets. That theory three claims that markets tend towards equilibrium deviations occur in a random fashion and can be attributed to extraneous shocks if that theory is valid mine is false and vice versa," Soros once said.

Soros has always relied on scientific and free-market principles in his investment strategies, from when he worked at F.M. Mayer and founded the Quantum fund. His strategy relies on principles such as reflexivity, gradually increasing positions on improving market trends and trimming positions to lock in profits or avert the risk of significant losses. In addition, he blends his political acumen into his investments while leveraging diverse perspectives before making any critical decision.

While the US billionaire has handed over the running of his $25 billion empire to his son Alex Soros, Soros Fund Management remains one of the most talked about hedge funds on Wall Street. Likewise, the hedge fund has significantly changed its portfolio due to changing macroeconomics and monetary policy.
