Posted May 07, 2018 04:09:50 When Vivien Thompson and Thomas Singster started their hedge fund in 1994, the idea was to do well enough to earn a decent salary, and then sell it for profit to a bank.
Today, the duo are worth $20 billion, making them the world’s wealthiest hedge fund managers.
Their success in the early years of the financial crisis has allowed them to build their wealth while keeping their net worth relatively modest.
In an era when many billionaires have begun their own businesses, they have also kept their business interests relatively private.
Their wealth, combined with their connections and wealth in other parts of the world, has allowed both to keep their wealth relatively modest and, if they are to continue living in the US, keep it relatively close to home.
While the two billionaires were both born in the USA, their fortunes are almost entirely made in Britain, where they both grew up.
“I’ve always said that we didn’t grow up in the same country.
Our lives are very different,” said Vivien, a former investment banker at JP Morgan Chase.
“Vivien grew up in England, and she came to America at the age of 13 to go to school.
Thomas came to the US at the same time.
Thomas moved to London when he was 14 and lived in London for four years, before coming to the United States at the end of his high school years.
We have very different cultures, very different experiences, and very different values.”
While their wealth and personal lives are closely related, the similarities between them have been limited.
Their investments are based in different sectors.
Their mutual fund has a $30 billion portfolio and is a majority-owned stake in Goldman Sachs.
In addition, their mutual fund was the first to launch in 2007, and it now holds an estimated $3.3 billion in assets.
Thomas was born in a small town in the west of England, where his parents were farmers and his father worked as a plumber.
When he was seven, he started going to school in the United Kingdom, studying at St Albans Primary School.
At 18, he left school and joined a local construction company, where he earned an average of £50 a week.
Vivien said Thomas came back to the UK when he graduated from college, but then returned to his family home in England to work in a construction firm for three years.
After leaving the firm, Thomas returned to school and eventually became a construction worker.
He spent a decade in construction before landing a job at a firm that had already taken over the firm and turned it into one of the largest companies in Britain.
At the time, the firm was struggling financially, and Vivien was told to go on a holiday to Scotland to look for a job.
He said he was happy to leave home and come back to England to help out.
He returned to work there two years later, after he finished school, and in 2008 was offered a job as an accountant.
“The first day I went on the job, I was a total wreck.
I had a lot of stress and I was still in school and working for a company that was collapsing,” said Thomas.
“In those first weeks, I didn’t think about the money.
I didn, and I had to work very hard to get to where I am today.
I was working on my own personal account. “
Then, I did something really important that I haven’t done in a long time: I started working on a new business.
I was working on my own personal account.
I started selling investments.
I sold the hedge fund, and my investment was worth a lot less than it was before.”
Since the financial crises, the two have amassed an estimated fortune of $3 billion, and are estimated to have made around $1 billion from their investments.
In the 1990’s, the pair bought shares of a British pharmaceutical company, Pfizer, for $1.5 billion.
“We thought we were going to make a million dollars a year,” said Vinnie, speaking from the United Arab Emirates.
“That was before the financial crash.”
Since then, the fund has grown and is now worth $14 billion.
As the hedge funds fortunes grew, the UK government started cracking down on tax evasion, and when they started to see that some of their investments were in tax havens, the government cut off some of the funds.
Vivie’s and Thomas’s companies are now also listed on the British Virgin Islands, which is an offshore tax haven, and which, as the Financial Times reported, “may be used to shelter billions of dollars in offshore profits from US authorities”.
Both said that, in their view, the US has a system that
