Darren Butterfield Manchester


Over the last four years, he has disbursed more than GBP 2 million through his foundation. His philanthropic nature has a lot to with his upbringing. Darren is the classic example of rags to riches story.


Darren Butterfield-Manchester is, by all definitions, a successful person. He is under 40-years of age and runs a fund that has upwards of GDP 20 million, most of it personal assets. While that is a small amount compared to most globally recognized hedge funds, Darren has done well for himself, considering that he started from scratch and did not have any notable backers. He started the fund four years ago, with bonuses that he had received in a career spanning a decade at top investment banks. Since forming the fund, Darren has done well for himself and his investors. He takes pride in having short Bitcoin in 2018 and returned a profit of over 150%. He has also made a series of other hugely success bets, especially on the tech industry.  Darren continues to return a healthy profit to investors, with investments that cut across equities, crypto, and commodities.  His success is anchored on a solid background in finance. He holds a degree in finance and several other industry certifications. He is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP), Certified Fund Specialist (CFS), and is also a Certified Financial Analyst (CFA). Despite his huge financial success, Darren is quite modest compared to his industry peers and is also very philanthropic. He runs a foundation that helps in the educational needs of children from impoverished backgrounds. His motivation to help them has a lot to do with his childhood. He grew up poor, and the only reason he managed to climb the social ladder is education. He hopes that by empowering kids with quality education, they can turn out like himself and empower many more.  Darren is so dedicated to the foundation that he has committed and disbursed more than GBP 2 million in the last four years. Despite having a hectic life, Darren also spares some time for himself. He owns a boat and can be found having fun on it with his close friends and family. It’s his way of unwinding, to keep his mind focused when scouting for the next big thing in the markets.
