Ti­tle: Founder, Icahn En­ter­prises Coun­try: US Age: 79

Carl Icahn is the bil­lion­aire founder of Icahn Cap­i­tal Man­age­ment. At the age of 80, he is worth $15.9 bil­lion and is one of the most suc­cess­ful in­vestors in the world. When Icahn re­vealed on Twit­ter that he has a stake in the com­pany worth more than $1 bil­lion, Ap­ple stock shot up af­ter a slump the year be­fore. The bil­lion­aire is of­ten com­pared with the legendary War­ren Buf­fet and some even say that he is a bet­ter in­vestor. He has a strong per­son­al­ity, and he’s with­out qualms when it comes to tak­ing on big­ger chal­lenges.

Icahn has in­vested in many ma­jor com­pa­nies in the USA and the rest of the world. Ap­ple, Net­flix, Time Warner, Casi­nos, Revlon, My­lan Strato­sphere are some of the most prom­i­nent com­pa­nies Icahn has in­vested in.

So, what’s his in­vest­ment phi­los­o­phy? Carl Icahn has a rep­u­ta­tion in the Wall Street as a ruth­less in­vestor. His mojo is clear: con­trar­ian in­vest­ment and share­holder ac­tivism, both of which are closely in­ter­twined.
