The career of George Soros has continued to bring the Hungarian born hedge fund manager a huge level of financial success for many decades, but the former refugee from Communist rule has also become known for the huge level of philanthropic success he has achieved with his own charitable network, according to the Open Society Foundations. As the founder of the Soros Fund Management brand, George Soros has become known around the world as the investment specialist who played a key role in the devaluation of the British currency in 1992 and continues to find success as a financial expert despite being born in 1930; Soros understands the needs and responsibilities of those in the greatest need largely because of his own refugee journey and his time working as a railway porter and waiter ti pay his own way through the London School of Economics.
After achieving personal success as a financial specialist and hedge fund manager starting his career in 1956, George Soros began exploring philanthropic opportunities in the late 1970s when his work began in developing a regular exchange of ideas in Soviet controlled areas of Eastern Europe; Soros is credited with purchasing copying equipment used to aid in the distribution of banned materials across Eastern Europe. The work of George Soros in the philanthropic world became more focused in 1984 when he established the Open Society Foundations to develop a focused plan to fund groups that support his own left leaning political and social ideas, according to Biography.com. The father of five children has become a major part of the daily work of the Open Society Foundations as he is always willing to bring ideas to the group of aides and experts he employs to assist in creating one of the world’s leading philanthropic networks that had donated more than $7 billion to good causes by 2012.
