Daniel Morton Ziff was born in 1973 to Barbara Ingrid Beitz and William Bernard Ziff Jr.
He is the youngest son of William Bernard Ziff Jr., a Jewish American media magnate.
Ziff's grandfather, William Bernard Ziff Sr., co-founded the publishing company Ziff Davis in 1927.
He graduated from the Trinity School in New York City in 1989 and later earned a Bachelor of Arts from Columbia University in 1996.
Ziff, along with his brothers Dirk Edward Ziff and Robert D. Ziff, inherited the family fortune in 1994.
The Ziff family's wealth stems from the Ziff-Davis magazine empire, known for publications like PC Magazine and Car and Driver.


After their father sold 95% of the family business for $1.4 billion in 1994, the Ziff brothers formed Ziff Brothers Investments.
They diversified their investments across equities, debt, real estate, commodities, private equity, and hedge funds.
Ziff Brothers Investments provided seed money for Daniel Och, acquiring a 10% stake in Och-Ziff Capital Management.
In 2014, Ziff Brothers Investments ceased operations, and the brothers began investing independently.
Ziff has been noted for his involvement in political funding and his role in the passage of the Magnitsky Act.

Carsten Maschmeyer is very wealthy, but what's stopping you from reaching that same level of success? As summarized in our five fundamental rules to wealth building, becoming wealthy in a modern capitalist economy is not complicated. There's actually only three variables:

  1. Your starting capital
  2. Your earnings after expenses
  3. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of your savings

Most people start with zero or very little, so if you weren't born into wealth, don't fret! The majority of the fortunate folks listed in our Grizzly Bulls’ Billionaires Index came from middle class or lower backgrounds. The most distinguishing characteristic of the group is their ability to consistently earn a high CAGR on their savings.

Every billionaire has a unique strategy to achieve high CAGR. For Carsten Maschmeyer, Finance Services is the primary source. Whether you choose to invest your savings in your own businesses or the businesses of others is not as important. The salient piece of the puzzle is ensuring that your hard-earned savings are generating sufficient CAGR to reach your long term goals.

Most people simply invest their money in index funds and call it a day. There's nothing wrong with this approach, but it guarantees relative mediocrity. To achieve greatness, you need to invest your money to earn higher than average returns. In the long run, better investors will always finish ahead of better earners.
