Steve Cohen Family

by Jessica Sara

Hedge fund magnate Steve Cohen founded SAC Capital Advisors, which was based in Stamford, Connecticut. Although he had to shut down the company as it was found guilty of insider trading, what is incredible is that Cohen put in his own money to start the hedge fund. He first began trading with $7,000 taken from his tuition money. SAC Capital was established in 1992 with $20 million.
