- 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.
