The All-Rounder – This Legend is CEO of a global financial data and media company, was touted as a possible presidential candidate and has received more awards and accolades than you can shake a stick at (including an honorary knighthood). Oh, and he’s the sixteenth-wealthiest person in the world. Not a bad effort…

The Investor – The founder of one of the biggest investment companies, worth an estimated $15.2 billion and one of Bloomberg Market‘s 50 most influential people. He also predicted the global financial crisis.

The Wizard of Ohama – The most successful investor of the 20th century, this Legend was the wealthiest person in the world in 2008, with an estimated net worth of $62 billion – but he famously pledged to give at least half of his wealth to charity, and has already donated eye-wateringly large sums to a range of causes.

Can you guess who they are? Stay tuned to find out if you’re right, and just why we think they’re Littlefish Legends…
