Eighty-three-year-old hedge fund billionaire George Soros has married for the third time.
The Soros Fund Management chief and entrepreneur Tamiko Bolton, 42, made it official during a small ceremony at Soros' Bedford, N.Y., home on Saturday, more than a year after their engagement was announced. Manhattan federal judge Kimba Wood presided over the non-denominational service.
The wedding itself was just a small part of a three-day-long celebration that opened on Friday with a gathering at the Museum of Modern Art and featured a 500-guest reception, with attendees including former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim and former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan, who gave a speech.
According to Forbes magazine, Soros, who closed his hedge fund to outside investors two years ago, is worth $20 billion.
Bolton—whom a Soros spokesman said will be well taken care of after Soros' death—is the founder of a Web-based yoga education business. The former pharmacist also founded an Internet dietary supplements business. The marriage is her second.
