As promised recently (and again twice and again and again etc.– were on a role!) we are updating/cleaning etc the investor resource pages on a regular basis. Last week, we worked on the George soros resource page .

We do not post all the investor updates on TwitterFacebook etc. The best way to find new/updated etc profile pages,  without missing any ….is by subscribing to our free newsletter. Make sure you do that!

Below is a partial excerpt from both pages followed by link to each full page, which can also be found under Value investors tab on the top of the page or via link-> http://www.valuewalk.com/george-soros-resource-page/

In a discussion at the Los Angeles World Affairs Council in 2006, Alvin Shuster, former foreign editor of the Los Angeles Times, asked Soros, “How does one go from an immigrant to a financier? When did you realize that you knew how to make money?”

Soros replied, “Well, I had a variety of jobs and I ended up selling fancy goods on the sea side, souvenir shops, and I thought, that’s really not what I was cut out to do. So, I wrote to every managing director in every merchant bank in London, got just one or two replies, and eventually that’s how I got a job in a merchant bank.” That job was an entry-level position in Singer & Friedlander.
