Top 100 Investors In The World (2023)

Any search for the world’s biggest investors will produce images of Warren Buffet and George Soros. True those are legends; pioneers in the field of investing, and their lives will be studied by investors and financial analysts for generations to come.

However, those search results do not reflect the present realities; the world of investment is dynamic, and so are its participants. Leading the charge to create financial opportunities for the future from ideas that may seem distant today are many young men and women.

Committing huge funds to distant ideas takes a special kind of daring. This is why these special people deserve some recognition.
