Timeline of Chris Hohn
In April 2020, he had made a £2.4 million donation to purchase around 100 SAMBA II machines to test for COVID-19.
In 2019, it was reported that he had built a €730m stake in Heathrow Airport via a range of investment companies jointly taking a 4% stake in Spanish multinational Ferrovial.
In 2019 it was reported by the Telegraph that Hohn had donated £50,000 to environmental activist group Extinction Rebellion, with a further £150,000 donated by the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation. None of the Charity’s money was spent on civil disobedience, it was claimed.
Hohn took £200m in dividend payments in 2018, slightly more than his Children’s Investment (TCI) fund made in profit. This was down from $274m in 2017 and $364m in 2016. His 2015 earnings of $250 million ranked him 12th among the 25 top earning hedge fund managers.
As of 2014, he had given over $4.5B to The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation. Hohn is worth £1.2 billion according to the Sunday Times Rich List in 2019, an increase of £200 million from 2018.
Hohn was appointed Knight Commander of the Order of St Michael and St George (KCMG) in the 2014 Birthday Honours for services to philanthropy and international development.
In 2013 it was reported that Hohn had begun divorce proceedings with his wife. In November 2014, he was set to pay his American-born ex-wife $500 million, in what is thought to be the biggest divorce settlement ever awarded by an English court. In December 2014, he was ordered to pay his ex-wife £337 million.
In 2003, Hohn established The Children’s Investment Fund Management (TCI), a prominent value-based investment fund manager noted for long-term, owner orientated engagement with publicly listed companies. Profits generated by the fund were proportionately allocated to The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, a registered charity in England and Wales that focuses on improving the lives of children living in poverty in developing countries. He is known as an activist investor.
In 2003, Hohn set up his own hedge fund, The Children’s Investment Fund. TCI donated regularly to a connected charitable fund, The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, run by his wife. The original formula involved transfers of 0.5 percent of the fund’s assets each year, with a further 0.5 per cent of assets for every year during which the fund achieved returns of more than 11 per cent. It is reported that Hohn established the formulaic charitable link in order to motivate himself. Coinciding with the couple’s divorce proceedings, changes set in motion in 2012 led to the splitting up of the fund and the foundation. The fund no longer donates money to the foundation on a contractual basis, though it may do so on a discretionary basis.
After graduating, Hohn worked for the private equity group Apax Partners. In 1996 he went to work for Perry Capital, a hedge fund on Wall Street. In 1998 he was made head of Perry’s London operations. In his time with Perry, he earned an estimated £75m.
He was a pupil at St Paul’s County Secondary School in Addlestone between 1979 and 1983 gaining 13 O Levels; he then attended the University of Southampton from which he graduated in 1988 with first-class honours in accounting and business economics. Whilst at Southampton, a tutor advised him to apply for Harvard Business School, where he completed the Master of Business Administration course. He graduated in 1993 as a Baker Scholar, meaning he was among the top five percent of all graduates.
