Eric Wittouck

  • An heir to a Belgian sugar fortune, Eric Wittouck is a descendant of the family that founded Tiense Suicker.
  • Wittouck’s net worth has expanded dramatically thanks to Invus, a New York private equity firm that mostly manages Wittouck’s money.
  • Run by Ray Debbane, Invus has scored huge returns through investments like Blue Buffalo Pet Products and Weight Watchers.
  • Wittouck’s decision to remain fully invested in Invus is one of the greatest investment decisions ever. His cousins mostly pulled their cash out 20 years ago.
