Because GEORGE Soros is a prominent member of American high society, news of his passing is bound to spread.
George Soros is still alive and healthy despite an absurd hoax that spread online that claimed his death. This is how it developed.
George Soros: who is he?
A 92-year-old investor from Nazi-occupied Hungary, George Soros immigrated to England in 1947.
Prior to founding his first hedge fund in 1969, he worked at commercial banks in England and the US while attending the London School of Economics.
Soros started his second hedge fund, Soros Fund Management, in 1970 with the money he made from that.
He became famous and wealthy two decades ago thanks to a now-iconic deal in which he challenged the Bank of England and cleverly bet on the depreciation of the pound.
Soros actively supports politically liberal initiatives and frequently remarks on current affairs in the world economy.
He is currently married to Tamiko Bolton, the head of a yoga studio, who is 42 years his younger. He has been married three times and divorced twice.
His wealth was estimated to be £5.8 billion after he donated 80% of it to charity.
The billionaire gave £13 billion to Open Society Foundations, a global network of NGOs that focuses on programs aimed at assisting refugees and promoting public health in more than 100 countries.
He had a net worth of almost £16.5 billion prior to the transfer.
