Aaron Fifield Podcast Leave a Comment

Jim Mellon’s a British investor, entrepreneur and philanthropist.

It was 1979 when Jim got his start, in Hong Kong, as a trainee fund manager. When the fund was acquired eight years later, he received a windfall, becoming a millionaire in his late-twenties…

And from that point forward, Jim has spread his bets far and wide, as an investor in emerging markets, commercial real estate, private and public companies—across many sectors; from financial services to mining to biotech and more.
