Paul Tudor Jones II

CATEGORY: Billionaires
COMPANY: Tudor Investment Corp.

WHAT MAKES HIM HAUTE: The self-made hedge fund billionaire founded New York City poverty-fighting group Robin Hood Foundation in 1988, which raised $70 million at a single banquet in 2007. He also formed a $125 million commodity pool with LBO executive Ray Chambers, called the One to One Charitable Fund, that devoted most of its profits to helping disadvantaged children. One of Jones’ earliest and major successes was predicting Black Monday in 1987, tripling his money during the event.
