Soros Spends a Fortune on Charitable Causes

 

George Soros is a Hungarian-born and British-educated multi-billionaire financier. He’s famous for making a billion dollars in a single day with his 10-billion-dollar bet on a decline of a British Pound back in 1990s.

Soros took his investment skills and established Soros Fund Management. This company runs Quantum Group of Funds which speculatively invest in stocks, commodities, and foreign exchange. This company has made Soros his billions. His net worth is estimated at nearly 25 billion dollars.

This 85-year-old investment guru has written books to share his amazing experiences. Among the most popular ones is the “Alchemy of Finance.” What’s more, he wrote another well-known book, “Underwriting Democracy,” expressing his interests in politics.

But investing and writing isn’t all what Soros is about. He also has founded an Open Society Foundation. This organization operates in multiple countries and its primary objectives include building tolerant democracies and government accountability. This organization works for greater tolerance of transgender individuals, refugees, and Roma people among others.

The recent refugee crisis has taken attention of George Soros. He states that Europe should accept a million Middle-Eastern and African refugees per year for foreseeable future and to support them financially. This has drawn much criticism from some politicians.

According to Soros, the burden of accepting refugees should be spread among various members of the European Union. This has brought criticism from Hungary, a place where Soros was born and left at the age of seven. Victor Orban, a Hungarian leader, publicly blamed Soros for causing a refugee crisis.

Soros made an announcement detailing how Europe should rebuild its asylum system. He blamed the European Union for a lack of common asylum policy and not doing enough to help the Syrian and other refugees. His plan calls for Europe and other countries to spend many billions of dollars per year on refugee aid.

As the refugee crisis intensifies, Soros and his organizations will likely push for their vision of how Europe should be and act.

Selecting A Lawyer For Legal Advice

Sooner or later, everybody will require a law firm or lawyer for something. If you are facing a legal situation it is important that you get adequate representation. Venturing into the legal arena and litigations for the first time can be an extremely complicated experience. That’s why it’s important to get a good lawyer.

Selecting a great attorney can be a frustrating task. Compound this difficulty or frustration with the fact that much of your success depends on just how you choose your attorney and who you end up with and it’s easy to become overwhelmed with the whole situation. It can be a great idea for you to shop around and research the background of multiple attorneys so you can be sure you’re working with a suitable professional to take care of your legal matter.

Before hiring a lawyer it is always a good idea to have some kind of consultation with the lawyer. Most attorneys offer a free consultation. You simply need to contact the law firm or attorney’s office to schedule your meeting with the lawyer. And be sure to have all of your pertinent documents with you during the consultation.

You need to not expect to obtain any law advice during your free consultation. Many people erroneously believe that a free consultation involves obtaining some law advice, but the majority of lawyers will not provide it until they get some kind of payment or fee. A consultation is generally set up to offer an attorney and a prospective client a chance to meet regardless if the client could possibly benefit from the attorney’s services depending on her circumstance. The majority of attorneyss spend no more than 30 minutes with a client during a free consultation, and this is usually just enough time to hear the basics of the client’s circumstance, touch on available options, and go over payment details.

When attending school at night, Bruce opted to start working for the Washington Star in order to start his career in journalism. Ed Peskowitz along with Bruce Levenson went on in 1977 to form the UCG, United Communications Group. The two of them would meet together in Bruce’s apartment and started the Oil Express, a newsletter that would inform its readers about the current surroundings of the oil industry. Once they had readers and knew what they were doing, they would start a number of other newsletters along with an online database. This database would keep the readers informed of current happenings surrounding healthcare, banking and even energy resources. The group would move on to bigger and better things with the creation of the Gas Buddy app which showed users what gas stations in nearby vicinities offered the best price available. The app has been downloaded by millions and used as a means to help people save money with each gallon of gas purchased. In 2004 Times wrote, Bruce and his friend Ed joined together to purchase the Atlanta Hawks.

Adam Sender, Modern Art Collector

Adam Sender primarily has his career as the hedge fund manager at Exis. His office arguably resembles that of Penelope Garcia in Criminal Minds. It’s sound-proof with very low lighting and he trades all day at a desk in front of a computer. However, Sender is best known for collecting contemporary art for both his homes and his office. He favors those who have been working at the field for quite some time. However, he says that he doesn’t chase every current style every month but instead simply seeks out works that he personally likes.

Making smart choices even with art every time is a challenge. It’s like making smart choices with the stock market every time. It takes a sense of good assessment and good judgment to collect entire works of art that, put together, seem to tell a whole story.

In 2015, Sender passed some of his collections on to Sotheby to be auctioned off. They collected over 400 pieces by almost 140 artists. Some of the artists’ works due to be auctioned, include Cindy Sherman, Richard Prince and Dan Flavin. They also include some younger artists such as Rashid Johnson and Adam McEwen.

Sender, however, has not been collecting these works of art entirely single-handed. He has some connections to professional curators such as Lisa Dennison, who is currently the Chairman of Sotheby. Dennison claims that she believes that one thing that has made Sender so successful in his collections is that he assesses the artwork on the whole and looks past what the image might be trying to say. In 2003, for example, he collected many works by Matthew Barney, which were on sale at that time. It was Barney who he used as an inspiration for reading works of art to his own collector’s success.

Artwork representing contemporary and modern movements, such as minimalism and appropriation make up most of Sender’s collection.
