George Soros Quantum Fund Investment Portfolio as of Q1/2012

George Soros is the founder of Soros Fund Management. In 1970 he co-founded the Quantum Fund with Jim Rogers and Christoper Ink, which created the bulk of the Soros fortune. Legendary was his currency speculation against the British Bank of England:

On September 16, 1992, Soros's fund sold short more than USD 10 billion worth of pounds sterling, profiting from the Bank of England's reluctance to either raise its interest rates to levels comparable to those of other European Exchange Rate Mechanism countries or to float its currency. Finally, the Bank of England withdrew the currency from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism, devaluing the pound sterling. Soros earned an estimated worth of USD 1.1 billion in the process. He was dubbed "the man who broke the Bank of England." UK Treasury estimated the total costs of Black Wednesday at GBP 3.4 billion in 1997.

Below is a top 30 list of his investment positions as of March 31, 2012. Soros Fund Management LLC was valued at USD 3.9 billion. Top New Buys: CVI, STI, CVX, M, XLP, TSO, CRM, JPM, MPC, GE

During the quarter, George Soros had 180 total positions.

    George Soros is one of the world's most renowned investors and financiers of all time. He founded his investment firm Soros Fund Management in 1969, which served as advisor to the Quantum Group of Funds. The firm is known as one of the pioneering macro hedge funds. It has been recognized as one of the most successful hedge funds in history, averaging total returns of over 20% per year over the past four decades. Last year, the fund closed doors to outside money and returned about $1 billion in the process to transition into a family office due to increased regulatory scrutiny. Currently, the fund has about $25 billion in assets under management.
