We love learning new fun facts about hedge fund titan Paul Tudor Jones.Jones recently shared some of his favourite Bible verses while being honored as a distinguished alumnus at his high school, Presbyterian Day School, in Memphis, Tennessee.
Apparently, PTJ’s faith isn’t something that comes up in everyday conversation living in Greenwich, Connecticut.
“Talking about my faith up there is like explaining snorkelling to an Eskimo,” the master macro trader was quoted as saying in the Memphis Daily News.
Anyway, we’ve put together some of his favourite verses based on the report.
Proverbs 23:4: “Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint.”
Proverbs 13:19: “A desire fulfilled is sweet to the soul, but to turn away from evil is an abomination to fools.”
Matthew 25:45: “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
Those quotes are very telling, considering all of the charitable work Tudor Jones does (i.e. The Robin Hood Foundation).
