Curt Degerman: The millionaire beggar
Meet Curt Degerman, A begger who became millionaire by investing.
For 40 years he spent his days searching through bins of a small Swedish town called Skellefteå. Looking for scrap metal and tin cans.
After he died of a heart attack aged 60 it was discovered he had left behind a portfolio of stocks and shares worth at least $1,100,000 in a Swiss bank account and a safety deposit box containing 124 gold bars valued at $375,000.
Curt hardly ever spent any money and used to eat leftovers from bins of a fast food restaurant.
But everyday he would go to the library to read the daily business newspaper, using what he learnt to help him choose his investments.
