Daniel M. Ziff (born 1965) is an American billionaire and the youngest son of publishing magnate William Bernard Ziff, Jr. He and his two brothers inherited the family fortune in 1994. As of March 2012, Forbes magazine indicates that his net worth totals $4.2 billion.[1]

Early life and education

Daniel was born in 1973. His mother was Barbara Ingrid Beitz, an ethnic German whose parents were declared as "Righteous among the Nations" for providing refuge and risking their lives to save Jews during World War II.[2] His father was the Jewish American media magnate William Ziff Jr. (d. 2006), who had built the Ziff-Davis magazine empire that included titles such as Popular Aviation, PC Magazine, and Car and Driver.

In 1989, Daniel graduated from the Trinity School in New York City where his father served as trustee.[3] He later earned a Bachelor of Arts from Columbia University.[4]

Career

Daniel and his brothers Dirk and Robert inherited the family fortune in 1994 after their father sold 95% of the business to Forstmann Little for $1.4 billion and retired. The father had originally wanted to pass the company on to his sons but they were not interested. Instead, they formed New York City-based Ziff Brothers Investments, investing their inheritances broadly across equities, debt, real estate, commodities, private equity and hedge funds. They also provided seed money to fund manager Daniel Och in exchange for a 10% stake in Och-Ziff Capital Management which went public in 2007.[1]

Personal life

In 2009, Daniel married Leslie Ziff, who serves on the boards of the American Ballet Theater and Rosie's Theater Kids.[5][6] The couple lives in New York City, New York[1]
