How did Todd Boehly make his money?

After leaving The London School of Economics, the entrepreneur embarked on a successful venture into the world of business. He started working at Citibank and CS First in Boston before moving to Guggenheim partners in 2001.

He created their credit-investing business and became the president of the company. In 2013, he brokered an agreement between Time Warner Cable and The Los Angeles Dodgers to create SportsNet LA, which broadcasts baseball content. The billionaire is the co-owner of the seven-time MLB World Series champions. In addition, he holds shares in the LA Lakers.

In a smart business move, he pooled his assets from Guggenheim, including The Hollywood Reporter, Dick Clark Productions, and Security Benefit, to create Eldridge Industries. The holding company owns stakes in 80 different finance, media, sports, real estate and technology businesses. This resulted in his already impressive empire expanding even further.
