Like the man who would even­tu­ally make him a bil­lion­aire, Gottes­man made a very well-timed in­vest­ment. He met War­ren Buf­fett and early on invested in Berk­shire Hath­away. To­day Gottes­man has nearly $1.8 billion in shares of the Buf­fett-led firm. Gottes­man’s own firm, First Man­hat­tan, has over $20 billion in as­sets un­der man­age­ment. Gottes­man partly funded the Na­tional Li­brary of Is­rael project in Jerusalem, which is slated to open in 2020.
