Being identified as a Japanese-American pharmacist wasn’t enough for Tamiko Bolton, so she equally established herself as an entrepreneur and an education consultant. Now, she’s admired and celebrated for the giant strides she has made in the fields of business, health, and education. Tamiko has built companies from the ground up into successful ventures that are churning out impressive profits annually. Although she has achieved a lot in her career so far, her biggest claim to fame is her marriage to the billionaire investor and financial analyst, George Soros, who is fondly referred to as “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England.”
Earlier in her professional journey, Tamiko worked as a health and education consultant for several private and corporate organizations. Later on, she decided to expand her sources of income by venturing into the world of business. She started an online company that specialized in the sales of vitamins and dietary supplements, which proved to be a worthy investment. She has since gone on to create another business which provides yoga education online. Tamiko is a partner in her husband’s firm, Soros Funds Management, and she frequently appears alongside him at world economic forums where the finance legend is often invited to speak. Like her husband, Tamiko is heavily involved in charity work and often gives huge donations to causes that she believes in.
Tamiko Bolton – Bio (Age and Ethnicity)
The licensed pharmacist and billionaire’s wife was born in 1971 but her exact date of birth is unknown, as she has managed to keep that piece of information closely guarded and out of the media. She was brought up in California by her father who was a retired naval commander, and her mother who worked as a nurse. Her mother was of Japanese-American descent, which makes Tamiko Japanese-American by way of ethnicity, although her nationality is American.
It is yet to be confirmed where Tamiko attained her basic or high school education. However, she earned her first degree at the University of Miami before going on to the University of Utah where she bagged an MBA. After completing her education, Tamiko began putting her degree to good use by working as a licensed pharmacist at a prestigious institution. She later became an education and health consultant.
Tamiko decided to broaden her horizons by establishing an internet-based company which sourced and sold healthy vitamin products and dietary supplements to users all over the country. The success of this enterprise spurred her to launch another online business, this time to provide informative yoga education to anyone who needs it. Apart from these, Tamiko has also invested in several other ventures, and is also a partner in Soros Fund Management, a company owned her husband.
Her Love Life
Before tying the knot with her current husband, Tamiko Bolton was previously married sometime in the 1990s, but the union did not last, and the identity of her ex-husband remains unknown. She met the Hungarian-American business tycoon, financial analyst, and investor, George Soros in 2008, at a dinner party. They struck up a conversation and soon realized they enjoyed each other’s company. Their friendship soon turned into a love affair and the couple got engaged in August 2012, while they were vacationing at Soros’ home in the Hamptons.
On September 21, 2013, Tamiko and Soros exchanged vows in a lavish ceremony. The event happened at Caramoor estate and was graced by dignitaries, including leaders of several nations.
Tamiko Bolton’s Net Worth
Although being married to a billionaire is a guaranteed key to wealth, it cannot be denied that Tamiko Bolton had done very well for herself in the money department before that. She had a great job and several businesses that were quite profitable. However, Tamiko has not yet made her net worth public. Her husband, George Soros is estimated to have a net worth of about $8 billion.
Both Tamiko and George donate millions of dollars every year to charities all over the world. When they got married, they asked guests and wellwishers to make donations to charity in place of wedding gifts.
