The article features Michael Hintze, founder, majority shareholder and chief executive of hedge fund group CQS in London, England. Hintze pours his money and his spare time into philanthropy, such as funding the restoration of Michelangelo's frescoes in the Pauline Chapel of the Vatican. And the way CQS is growing, Hintze will be making a lot more money--and writing a lot more checks to his favorite charities. He learned from an early age that hard work and education are the keys to freedom.
