John Maynard Keynes made the equivalent of a $10,000,000 fortune playing the market. Him losing 25% in one year is virtually guaranteed based on the frequency and type of risks he took. He wasn’t a failed investor. He just made a mistake one year, like anyone else. Citation: “Against the Gods” by Peter L. Bernstein
