John Alfred Paulson, a legendary American hedge fund manager, shot to fame in 2007 by short-selling subprime mortgages. He made more than $15 billion for his hedge funds by betting on the collapse of the mortgage-backed securities market in 2007 and 2008. Paulson became a billionaire overnight by predicting the real estate collapse in 2007 at a time when most Americans thought that real estate was infallible. He earned a staggering $3.5 billion that year. Paulson followed it with an equally perfectly timed bet that large banks would survive the financial crisis and that the price of gold would scale a new high. Last year, he personally earned what has been estimated as the largest single payday in the history of Wall Street, a mindboggling $4.9 billion. It is a record for the hedge fund industry. Despite making some poor investments this year which saw his flagship company take a tumble, his personal fortune has swelled substantially. The reason behind this stunning development is the fact that Paulson has invested most of his personal fortune in gold and now he’s reaping the rewards. The mega hedge fund manager bought a new mansion in Aspen last year where he lives with his family. The $24.5 million ranch is the most expensive single sale in the Aspen during recent times. At one time, Paulson also owned a 10.44-acre property on Lake Agawam in Southampton in which he invested a staggering $41.3 million. After entering the Billionaires Club, Paulson has made several charitable donations including $15 million to build a children's hospital in Guayaquil, Ecuador which happens to be his father’s birthplace and $4 million to the London School of Economics.
