One of 4 broth­ers who in­her­ited a small for­tune from oil baron un­cle Sid Richard­son and built it into a big one. His fam­ily of­fice helped seed nu­mer­ous in­vest­ment funds, in­clud­ing Oak Hill Ad­vi­sors. In 1988, he sold New York’s Plaza Ho­tel to Don­ald Trump for some $400 mil­lion. His high­est-pro­file in­vest­ment to­day is in Ae­rion Corp., which is build­ing su­per­sonic busi­ness jets.
