Forbes' Rich List
Hedge Fund Managers Included on Forbes' 400 Rich List
At least 61 alternative investments titans crowd this year’s Forbes 400 list of the wealthiest Americans. And the most well-off among them—the 18 that made Forbes’ top 100—for the most part got richer over the last year.
George Soros remains the richest hedge fund manager in the land with $14.2 billion, making him more than $1 billion richer than last year. Soros ranked 14th among America’s wealthiest. John Paulson came in second among alternatives billionaires with $12.4 billion, nearly doubling his total from last year to leapfrog Carl Icahn, Ron Perelman ($11 billion each) and James Simons ($8.7 billion) on the list.
SAC Capital Advisors’ Steven Cohen came in 32nd on the list with $7.3 billion, followed by Ray Dalio ($5 billion), Sam Zell ($4.4 billion), David Tepper ($4.3 billion), and Bruce Kovner and Stephen Schwarzman ($4.1 billion each). Source
