Soros goes for third time lucky with marriage

City A.M. Reporter
GEORGE Soros, the 83-year-old billionaire investor, philanthropist and active supporter of liberal political causes, married health care and education consultant Tamiko Bolton at the weekend.

Soros and Bolton, 42, exchanged vows in a small ceremony at his Bedford, New York, estate, which Soros bought in 2003 from Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton.

Federal judge Kimba Wood officiated at the non-denominational wedding, which was attended by members of the couple’s families, including the groom’s five children, a source familiar with the wedding said on Saturday.

For Soros, whose net worth is $20bn (£12.5bn) according to Forbes, this will be his third marriage. It is Bolton’s second.

Soros, who established one of the first hedge funds in 1969 and is probably best known for famously betting against the British pound in 1992, met Bolton at a dinner party in 2008. Their engagement was announced in August 2012.

Bolton, who was raised in California, holds an MBA from the University of Miami. Bolton has been a consultant and entrepreneur working in the fields of health and education, including starting a supplement and vitamin internet sales company.
