The world's oldest Money Manager dies - aged 109


At 108, he was still working three days a week!

Irving Kahn, the Manhattan money manager whose astounding longevity enabled him to carry firsthand lessons from the Great Depression well into the 21st century, has died. He was 109.

Bloomberg News reports that he died on February 24 at his apartment in Manhattan, his grandson, Andrew Kahn, said Thursday.

A studious, patient investor from a family whose durability drew the attention of scientists, Kahn was co-founder and chairman of Kahn Brothers, a broker-dealer and investment adviser with about $1bn under management.

Last year, at 108, he was still working three days a week, commuting one mile from his Upper East Side apartment to the firm’s midtown office.
