Vivi Nevo is an Israeli businessman who has a net worth of $800 million. Vivi Nevo accumulated his net worth as one of the largest shareholders of Time Warner Company and having large stakes in renowned organisations such as eBay, Microsoft and News Corporation. Born in Romania and raised in Israel, Vivi Nevo’s father was a chemical engineer and his mother was an anesthesiologist. However Nevo’s great financial gain came with great loss. At the age of 20, his mother died and left him a substantial inheritance. Nevo turned this generous inheritance into a much larger fortune.
Nevo’s road to investment all started in the nineties when he put in a huge chunk of his money into cable companies. Sharp-minded Nevo went on to invest in Time Warner as well as buying big stakes in Comcast, US West and Charter Communications, to name a few. Today, he invests his money in companies like Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan and more recently Twitter. Nevo, who once briefly dated supermodel Kate Moss, sights fellow movers and shakers, Rupert Murdoch and Jeff Bewkes (the CEO of Time Warner) as close friends. His new investment in Twitter has, not surprisingly, formed a bond with co-founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey. Nevo is also close to Lenny Kravitz. It may seem like the unlikely friendship, but the two have been best buddies for years – and they couldn’t be more different. Whereas Kravitz may indulge in the media attention, Nevo prefers to be out of the limelight. In fact, Nevo hires a public relations firm to maintain a private life.
