George Soros has long been regarded as one of the most impressive investors in the world after building a personal fortune of more than $25 billion by 2017 and establishing a hedge fund management company worth over $30 billion, according to Forbes. These impressive business achievements are still being completed by Soros as he sets out to keep his company at the very top of the global financial markets, but for the Hungarian born investor there is more to life than simply creating increasing levels of personal wealth; Soros is also known around the world for the success he has achieved as a philanthropist and political donor in the U.S. and around the world. Much of the work of George Soros is completed through his own Open Society Foundations that closely follows the political ideology of the philosopher Karl Popper who believed the rights provided by the U.S. Constitution must be fought for at all times rather than be seen as a God given right.

There is a large amount to admire in the work of George Soros that has been reported by The Open Society Foundations, including his own philanthropic donations of over $12 billion that dwarf the amount he has provided for political candidates and campaign over the course of the 21st century. As a former refugee himself the concern Soros has maintained for the plight of refugees and those unlawfully held by restrictive governments around the world has always been a major concern for the leader of Soros Fund Management. Through the Open Society Foundations, Soros has assisted in providing legal representation for people unlawfully held by government agencies around the world in a bid to allow them their right to freedom and freedom of speech.
On many different occasions the Open Society Foundations have made the decision to back the cause of different people around the world who are not permitted by society or a specific culture to express them and achieve as much as possible in their lives. George Soros himself has always been willing to throw his own weight behind a range of different people and good causes, including the fight to provide equality for all genders across the planet; in the U.S. alone, the well-known Democrat has been willing to provide a large level of funding for the Presidential campaign of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in her bid to become the first female U.S. President. Through his own company, George Soros has also been willing to continue the fight against sexism by appointing Dawn Fitzpatrick as the head of Soros Fund Management in one of the highest profile positions on the U.S. and global financial markets.
