If you needed any proof that bankers are evil and sadistic in their approach to life, then look no further than the case of David Tepper. He is the founder of Appaloosa Management and is considered one of the wealthiest hedge fund managers in the world. According to Forbes Magazine, he is worth over 10.4 billion dollars at this point. Before David went on to become the founders of one of the biggest corporations in the world, he was a part of another financial giant – Goldman Sachs.
According to a recent interview, David was in line for a major promotion at the corporation and was due to become a partner. His boss at the time, John Corzine, decided to pass over David and hand the promotion to someone else. This did not go well with the banker, who decided to take his revenge in a bizarre and highly expensive manner after becoming the founder of Appaloosa Management.
According to the interview with New York Magazine, David decided to buy his ex-boss’s holiday home in the Hamptons and tear the building down entirely. The house was over 6,000 square feet in size and was purchased by David for a whooping 43.5 million dollars. Tearing down the house, however, was not enough for David, who decided to make a bigger point by building a house twice the size of his boss’ ex-home on the same land. The now completed house is 11,268 square foot in size and remains as evidence for all of humanity to stay as far away as possible from bankers.
