Soros speculates on the world’s financial markets via his secret off-shore company, “Quantum Fund NV”, a private “investment fund” that handles a portfolio of 4 to 7 Billion US$ for several “clients”. The Quantum Fund is registered in the tax haven of the Netherland Antilles in the Caribbean. In order to evade control of his financial activities by the U.S. administration not a single U.S. citizen sits on the board of Quantum. It’s directors are a curious mixture of Swiss and Italian financiers… you tell me. Nothing to see here, keep moving.
Among the members of the board of the Quantum Fund is one Richard Katz. He is, at the same time, head of the “Rothschild Italia S.p.A.” in Milan and is also on the board of the commercial bank “N.M. Rothschild and Sons” in London. Another member of the board is Nils O. Taube. He is a partner in the London investment group “St. James Place Capital” which counts Lord Rothschild among it’s main partners. A frequent partner of Soros in several of his speculations –especially in the driving up of the gold quotation– is Sir James Goldsmith, a relative of the Rothschilds dynasty. On the board of Quantum we also find some heads of some highly “discreet” Swiss private banks (who help the syndicates of organized crime–weapons and drugs–to launder their money). Then there is Edgar D. de Picciotto, head of the Geneva private bank “CBITDB Union Bancaire Privee”, a main player on the gold and investment markets, Isidoro Albertini, head of the Milan stockbroking company “Albertini and Co.”, Beat Notz of the private bank “Banque Worms” at Geneva, Alberto Foglia, head of the Banca del Ceresio” at Lugano. In the course of the recent political corruption scandals in Italy it was found that several Italian politicians kept their money at the “Banca del Ceresio”. Apparently Soros had more than just insider knowledge about the weal points in Italian politics when he attacked the lira in Sept. 1994.
Soros: is just a front man. Soros has been identified as a front man of the Anglo-French Rothschild banking group. Understandably neither he nor the Rothschilds want this important fact to be public, so the tight links to his friends in the London “City”, in the British foreign ministry, in the state of Israel and to his mighty friends in the American establishment would stay concealed.”
EIR has discovered some startling facts about Soros’s financial patrons, including his close ties with all national branches of the Rothschild family.

Who was George Soros?[H: Better yet: Who IS this man? Meet one of the most prominent of the players in your downfall. He very much ‘was’ but he also IS and did, in fact wreck the economy of Southeast Asia in very short order. He is a top player in such as Bilderbergers and all the other controlling groups while doing nothing “illegal”. But then no one can do anything illegal if you and your colleagues make the laws.]
The now sixty-four year old Hungarian with a U.S. passport is a superstar amidst the great speculators. When the last Forbes list of the best-paid managers and financiers was published, Soros was in the lead by a huge margin. In the last year he earned 550 million US$, twenty times as much as the Disney boss. When Soros opens the hunt, the international money markets get moving and the reserve banks start worrying.
In September 1993 he succeeded over the Bank of England. He was certain that the bank would have to take the pound that came under pressure out of the European exchange mechanism and devalue it. He gambled ten billion US$ – with success. He made one billion US$ which the British taxpayers now have to come up with. He himself openly likes to be knows as the man who wants to influence the big money markets of the world.
This is a very unusual stance for an investor to take, who should rather be interested in using situations unobservedly that the competitors have not yet discovered. In March 1993 Soros’ activities became known when he predicted a rise in the price of gold. It is assumed – since this started a buying spree in precious metals – that this drove the price up 20% over the highest price since the Gulf War.
In the beginning of June 1993 he wrote an open letter to the business editor of the London Times, Anatole Kaletsky, announcing that he intended to urge the money markets to sell large amount of German government bonds in favor of French stocks. Which means: Down with the German mark and attack on the Bundesbank! In several newspapers across the world Soros is praised as a kind of Robin Hood of the Computer Age since by speculation he takes from the rich nations in grand style to hand out to Eastern Europe and Russia via several Soros Foundations, to prepare the way for “democracy” in those “poor” countries that had been bled dry by Communism.
Who then is Soros? The official story says that he was born in 1930 to Jewish parents and as a teenager had been chased from Budapest by the Nazis. He enrolled at the London School of Economics and in the mid-50’s came to the U.S. There he was magically drawn to Wall Street, but his career until 1969 was rather unspectacular. Then with a partner he took over an investment fund. He sold stocks he didn’t own as futures, hoping that their price would fall nearer the qualifying date and that he could acquire them at a price lower than his selling price.
From this fund, the Quantum Group evolved, a family of investment funds operating for the Dutch West Indies. Quantum is one of the most impressive “investment machines” in the world. In eight of the last twenty-four years it made an “official” profit of over 50%, in two of those years even over 100%. In the meantime Soros handed business over to a group of managers and limits himself to designing the “great campaigns”. He put down his principles in the book The Alchemy of Finance, where he says what “financial speculators this is more important than real economic facts”.
But this is but the picture the media – and we know who owns them – paint of him. Who is he in reality?
William Engdahl knows this to say about him:
“Soros speculates on the world’s financial markets via his secret off-shore company Quantum Fund NV, a private Investment fund that handles a portfolio of four to seven billion US$ for several “clients”. The Quantum Fund is registered in the tax haven of the Netherlands Antilles in the Caribbean. In order to evade control of his financial activities by the U.S. administration not a single U.S. citizen sits on the board of Quantum.

A frequent partner of Soros in several of his speculations – especially in the driving up of the gold quotation – is Sir James Goldsmith, a relative of the Rothschild dynasty. On the board of Quantum we also find the heads of some highly “discreet” Swiss private banks (who help the syndicated of organized crime – weapons and drugs – to launder their money).
Then there is Edgar D. de Piccioto, head of the Geneva private bank CBI-TDB Union Bancaire Privee, a main player on the gold and investment markets, Isidoro Albertini, head of the Milan stockbroking company Albertini & Co., Beat Notz of the private bank Banque Worms at Geneva, Albertl Foglia, head of the Banca del Ceresio at Lugano.
In the course of the recent political corruption scandals in Italy it was found that several Italian politicians kept their money at the Banca del Ceresio. Apparently Soros had more than just insider knowledge about the weak points in Italian politics when he attacked the lira in September 1994.
William Engdahl explains:
“Soros’ connection to the ultra-secret international finance circles of the Rothschilds is not just an ordinary or accidental banking connection. The extraordinary success Soros has on the high-risk financial markets cannot simply be explained with “gambler’s luck”.
Soros has access to information channels, both government and private.
Ever since the Second World War the Rothschild family tried to disseminate an aura of insignificance about themselves. But behind this [is] one of the mightiest and most obscure financial groups of the world. The Rothschilds spend a lot of money to cultivate a picture of a wealthy aristocratic family leading a quiet life where one loves French wines and another engages in charitable trusts.
To experts on the “City” N.M Rothschild & Sons is most influential in the faction of the British secret service establishment closely linked with the neo-liberal Thatcher wing of the Tory party. In the 80s N.M Rothschild & Sons made several billion US$ from the privatization of British state-owned industries they conducted for Mrs. Thatcher. The Rothschild bank is also at the center of world gold trade: In this bank the gold price is fixed twice a day by the five most influential gold trading banks.
But N.M Rothschild & Sons is also entangled in some very dirty secret service operations dealing with drugs vs. arms.
Because of its good relations to the highest places in the British secret services, the Rothschilds succeeded in preventing that their complicity with one of the worse illegal secret service networks, the BCCI (Bank of Credit and Commerce International) was never mentioned. In reality the Rothschild bank belonged to the inner circle of these international money laundering banks of the CIA and MI6 that financed in the 70s and 80s CIA projects like the Contras in Nicaragua.[H: Please a brief interruption on the topic of BCCI and GEORGE BUSH, Russell Herman, V.K. Durham, et al.: One day Mr. George Bush needed a Herman signature on a document which would also include that of V.K. Durham. He called and reached V.K. who asked “What the Hell” did he want?
In the conversation the names got a bit worse and finally the question was asked as to where Mr. Bush was at the time. He said he was sitting at his desk in “MY BANK – BCCI”. This was strange since is being President it was hardly “kosher” to have a bank, etc. The signatures were not forthcoming and that shortened Mr. Herman’s life-span by quite a bit.
I will also note that we personally wrote to Mr. George Soros within the past three years when Mr. Soros was weeping and wailing about the damage having been done to Southeastern Asia through his antics, and thus and so. We offered to share with him in exchange for participating in bringing back stability to the area. Son-of-a-gun, you know what? He declined! JUST AS HAS MR. BUSH, ET AL.
Gee whiz, and they want to help so much – they say. At the present time George W. Bush Jr. and Secretary of State (U.S. of course) Colin Powell addressed the Council of the Americas – the group of financiers and corporate Elite behind the drive to expand NAFTA into a continental trading bloc. This is being well orchestrated by Bilderbergers such as David Rockefeller with the string-pulling. My goodness, readers, there is so much to share and so little time, I think the saying goes.]
William Engdahl: “Was stecky hinter den Wahrungskriegen des George Soros? (What is behind the currency wars of George Soros?). EIRNA-Studie “Derivate – Die finanzielle Wasserstoffbombe der 90er Jahre” (Derivatives – The Financial Hydrogen Bomb of the 90s).[H: Oh, by the way, the whole intent of this large American bloc which will eat up everyone in reach is to place everything under the “dollar”. You know that “dollar” which had NO VALUE, NO BACKING AND NO OPPOSITION!]
The influential chairman of the banking commission in the U.S. House of Representatives, Henry Gonzales, chided the Bush and Reagan administrations for refusing to prosecute the BCCI. In addition, the Department of Justice repeatedly declined to co-operate in the Congressional investigations into the BCCI scandal and the closely linked scandal of the Banca Nazionale del Lavoro (BNL). This bank had made billions of dollars from loans that Bush had granted the Iraqi government shortly before the Gulf War.[H: CHOKE, CHOKE, CHOKE – AND FROM WHERE DID BUSH GET THE FUNDS? WOW, COULD IT BE: BONUS 3392-181? As a matter of fact, Bush and Saddam had at least one JOINT ACCOUNT with around $250 billion in its little account. When will you wake up, chelas?]
Gonzales said that the Bush administration had had a Department of Justice which he thought “the most corrupt, most unbelievably corrupt Department of Justice that I have ever experienced during my 32 years in Congress”.[H: And, yes, indeed, we did try to get Mr. Gonzales involved – but we suppose he chose to simply stay alive a bit longer.]
After the BCCI had been openly accused in the media for transgression of several laws, the New York prosecuting attorney Henry Morgenthau announced official charges against the BCCI. Morgenthau accused the BCCI of “the biggest banking fraud of the financial world.
“The BCCI during it’s nineteen year history operated as a corrupt criminal organization.” One of the directors of the BCCI, the Saudi Arabian Sheikh Kamal Adham, had been the head of the Saudi secret service during the time Bush headed the CIA.[H: I don’t want you to go away under the perspective that we somehow got no cooperation. WE DID! Our people found out how to deal with the Big Boys and even work out agreements – which we certainly followed to the letter of the instructions. Mostly in exchange for not naming the advisors. Among those contacts were some very high-level players who asked to not be identified. I don’t mean just “little boys”; I mean players on an international level of the big loop.]
Not a single Western newspaper has so far uncovered the fact that the Rothschild group linked with George Soros was at the hub of the vast illegal network of the BCCI. The key person in these activities was Dr. Alfred Hartmann, the managing director of the Swiss branch of the BCCI (Banque de Commerce et de Placement SA), head of the Zurich Rothschild Bank AG and the member of the board of N.M Rothschild & Sons in London.
He was also on the board of the Swiss branch of the Italian BNL and was vice-chairman of the N.Y. Inter Maritime Bank in Geneva. A friendly former secret service man who had worked on the Soros case disclosed that in September 1993 Soros had amassed – together with a mighty group of “silent partners” – a fortune in excess of 10 billion dollars to use as a lever to unhinge the European currencies.
AMONG THE PARTNERS APPARENTLY WERE THE LITTLE KNOWN METAL AND OIL DEALER MARC RICH [H: Now where have we heard about Mr. Rich lately, attached to Mr. Billy Clinton possibly?] AND THE ISRAELI ARMS DEALER SHAUL EISENBERG.
For decades Eisenberg had been working for the Israeli secret service and has important arms deals in all of Asia and in the near East. A third partner of Soros is Rafi Eytan who before was the Mossad connection to the British secret service in London.
Basically George Soros is another tool for economic and political warfare in the hands of the Rothschilds. He is among those circles who three years ago started a malicious “Fourth Reich” campaign against the reunited Germany; Soros is very anti-German. In his 1991 autobiography Underwriting Democracy Soros warned of the danger that a reunited Germany could disturb the (power) balance in Europe. It is easy to see how the situation that existed between the wars could come up again. A reunited Germany becomes the strongest economic power and develops Eastern Europe as its habitat…”a terrible witches’ brew”.
His U.S. contacts put Soros very close to the financial and secret service circles around George Bush. His most important deposit bank and the main lender during attack on the European monetary system in September 1993 was CITICORP, America’s largest bank. Soros called upon the international investors to unhinge the Deutsche Mark. When in late 1989 a reunification became probable, a high-ranking Citicorp manager said:
“German unity will be catastrophic for our interests. We have to take action to ensure a decline of the Deutsche Mark by about 30% so that Germany will not be able to build up Eastern Germany to become the economic factor with a new Europe.”
According to his associates Soros has “an incredible ego”. He described how during the war in occupied Hungary he could not have survived as Jew, so he had taken on a second identity. What he did no say, however, was that he let a man shield him from persecution who did wealthy Jews out of their possessions, and that Soros lent him a hand. This is how he “survived” the war. Leaving Budapest only two years after it had ended. Although he himself and the Jewish-owned media are quick in attacking all his opponents, especially in Eastern Europe, as anti-Semitic, his Jewishness is based on parts of the Talmud rather than on his links with Jewish religion or the Jewish people.
Outwardly, Soros supports a whole spate of social activities, like “peace concerts” with Joan Baez, stipends in Oxford for young Eastern Europeans, etc.
But reality presents a different picture. Soros is personally responsible for the chaos the “shock therapy” caused in Eastern Europe after 1989. He foisted ludicrous draconian measures upon the weak governments there, which enabled him to buy up resources in wide parts of Eastern Europe and [at] rock bottom prices.
Take Poland as an example:
At the end of 1989, Soros organized a secret meeting between the Communist regime of Rakowski with the leaders of the then illegal opposition union organization Solidarnosc. The plan he presented to both sides was as follows:
The Communists should let the opposition Solidarnosc take over the government to win the confidence of the people.
Then the state should deliberately drive its own state industries and agricultural businesses to ruin by applying astronomical interest rates, by withholding the necessary state loans and by lumbering the companies with debt they could never repay.
Then Soros would get his rich international business friends to come to Poland and buy up the now privatized state companies.
The most recent example is the huge steel company Huta Warsawa which today, so steel experts say, would cost about 3 to 4 billion US$ to build if it was built by Western companies. A few months ago the Polish government agreed to take over the “debts” of Huta Warsawa and to sell the company now free of debt for 30 million US$ to the Milan company Lucchini. [H: That’s the way it works, chelas.]
To instigate his plan Soros used a young friend, the Polish-Jewish economic advisor Jeffrey Sachs who however could not begin his advisory work in Poland because so far he could only show advisory work he did in Bolivia. So Soros set up another one of his many foundations, the Stefan Batory Foundation which then in turn was the official client for the advisory work of Sacks in Poland (1989/90).
In Soros’ own words he has worked or still works with the main advisor of Lech Walesa, Bronislaw Geremek, with General Jaruzelski, Professor Trxeciakowski, a secret advisor to the new Polish minister for finance and economy Leszec Balcerowicz, and with the latter himself. Soros admits that he had known that his economic “shock therapy” in Poland would lead to severe unemployment, to the closing of factories and to social tensions. That is why he insisted that Solidarnosc take over the government.
Through his foundation he could approach the most important opinion makers in the media, like Adam Michnik, and his collaboration with the U.S. embassy in Warsaw enable him to censor the media which proceeded one-sidedly to support his “shock therapy” and opposed any criticism. What do you say now? Isn’t that the old Talmud-Illuminati strategy?
Russia and the CIS states:
Soros led a delegation to Russia, where he had been collaborating with Raissa Gorbachev since the 80’s, to set up a further Soros foundation, The Cultural Initiative Foundation. This is a further vehicle for him and his Western cronies to enter the highest political echelons tax-free and proceed to “buy” the most important political and economic personalities of the country.
After a failed attempt with Gorbachev 1988 to 1991 he changed over to the circles around Yeltsin. And again it was Soros who introduced his “shock therapy” aided and abetted by his friend Jeffrey Sachs.
From January 2, 1992 onwards Sachs’ “shock therapy” brought an unprecedented chaos and a foreseeable hyper-inflation to Russia which was followed by the best scientific research institutes fleeing to the West. Under the Soros plan Igor Gajdar and the Yeltsin government shortened subsidies to industry and agriculture drastically, despite all of economy being a state economy. The goal announced was a deficit-free budget within three months. There were no more loans for industry; the companies accrued astronomical debts and the ruble inflation went out of control.
Soros and his friends immediately profited from the situation.
MARC RICH, THE WORLD’S LARGEST ALUMINUM DEALER, STARTED TO BUY UP A LOT OF RUSSIAN ALUMINUM AT INCREDIBLY LOW PRICES WITH WHICH IN 1993 HE PROCEEDED TO FLOOD THE MARKET IN THE INDUSTRIALIZED COUNTRIES AND THUS CAUSED THE PRICE FOR ALUMINUM TO PLUMMET BY 30%.
This is just one example of the Soros exploitation.[H: How many of you STILL think Bill Clinton just accidentally pardoned poor old suffering Marc Rich?]
When Istvan Csurka, parliamentarian of the national-socialist opposition tried to protest the destruction of the Hungarian economy by the strategies of Soros and his friends, he was branded an “anti-Semite” and in June was excluded from the governing Democratic Forum.
At the beginning of 1990, Soros – in cooperation with the IMF – in what was then still Yugoslavia put down the gauntlet for what then escalated into a war. Soros is also a friend of then deputy secretary of state Lawrence Eagleburger, the former ambassador to Belgrade and patron of Slobodan Milosevic. Eagleburger was formerly chairman of Kissinger Associates on whose board Lord Carrington (Committee of 300) also sits. The latter’s mediations have directly fuelled the Serbian aggression against the Croats and the Bosnians. Today Soros has foundations in Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia and a Yugoslav Soros Foundation in Belgrade/Serbia. In Croatia he uses funds from his foundation to hire influential journalists of to discredit opponents of his “shock therapy” as anit-Semites or neo-Nazis. (From the EIRNA study “Derivatives”)
