You slog it out as a Trader for a few years and realise that you're a boss. You become a PM and realise you're a boss. Other bosses realise you're a boss and they along with all their boss friends give you some money to play with. You become a hedge fund manger and confirm to all that you're a boss. You generate good returns for a few years and find yourself sitting on a few hundred mil. You close your fund and become a bum.
With a few hundred mil, there are not an awful lot of industries which are closed off to you. Why then is it that we hear very little about hedge fund managers using their cash to become bosses in other industries? Thoughts?
