Invest Like George Soros, Carl Ichan and John Paulson

Two ETFs To Invest Like George Soros, Carl Ichan and John Paulson

Neena Mishra: The Federal Reserve has decided to keep its $85 billion bond buying program in place and the stock market which was in the consolidation mode for the last few weeks, has resumed its upward march. With the punch bowl still on the table, the stock market party  may go on some time.

As a result of stock market optimism, investors have continued to pour a lot of money in US equity funds this year, but most of the money has gone to top few ETFs. The largest ETF SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) now has a whopping $148.2 billion in AUM. On the other hand, many smaller ETFs, particularly the ones that focus on certain ‘niche’ strategies continue to remain out of limelight.

George Soros was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1930. His father was taken prisoner during World War I and eventually fled from captivity in Russia to reunite with his family in Budapest. Soros was thirteen years old when Hitler's Wehrmacht seized Hungary and began deporting the country's Jews to extermination camps. In 1946, as the Soviet Union was taking control of the country, Soros attended a conference in the West and defected. He emigrated in 1947 to England, supported himself by working as a railroad porter and a restaurant waiter, graduated in 1952 from the London School of Economics, and obtained an entry-level position with an investment bank.

In 1956, Soros immigrated to the United States, working as a trader and analyst until 1963. During that time, he developed his own theory of markets called 'reflexivity', which he has laid out in his recent books THE ALCHEMY OF FINANCE and THE CREDIT CRISIS OF 2008 AND WHAT IT MEANS. In 1967 he helped establish an offshore investment fund; and in 1973 he set up a private investment firm that eventually evolved into the Quantum Fund, one of the first hedge funds, through which he accumulated a vast fortune.
