The homeless billionaire

Nicolas Berggruen is a billionaire businessman and philanthropist who was born on August 10, 1961.

He is the co-founder and chairman of the Berggruen Institute, a non-profit, non-partisan think tank that works to resolve global governance issues.

Nicolas Berggruen, who has a personal wealth of £1.5 billion according to Forbes, could afford to live in some of the most luxurious homes available

He is the founder and president of Berggruen Holdings, a private investment firm, and the co-founder and chairman of the Berggruen Institute, a non-profit, non-partisan think tank that works to address global governance issues.


The over 50-year-old, on the other hand, refuses to buy or rent a home.

Instead, he lives in luxurious hotels while traveling the world, acquiring businesses to add to his empire

So why did the eccentric Paris-born Franco-German, who converted a £150,000 loan from his wealthy art dealer father into a billion-pound fortune, choose to live in a series of hotels over a home life?

“I've already spent a lot of time in hotels, so it became easier to do this,” he explains. 

I am more happy.
