10 THINGS ON WALL STREET

Hi. Aaron Weinman here. Before I get into the Wall Street nitty gritty, a quick programming note: There will be no newsletter on Monday as we observe Labor Day. Enjoy your long weekend. I'll see you Tuesday.

Last night was draft night for the NFL fantasy football league I play in. Goodness me, compiling that was a lot more effort than I thought. It took three hours!

Can you imagine what it must be like managing or owning an actual, professional sports team? Well, I'd like to introduce you to people who might have some idea about that.

Uber-rich folks like Steve Cohen (owner of the New York Mets) and the Waltons hire their own chief investment officers to manage their fortunes.

These CIOs tend to stay out of the limelight, but their decisions — be it investing in a sports team or outlining a charity for philanthropic reasons — hold a lot of sway for some of the wealthiest people in the world.

Insider's Hayley Cuccinello got to know 10 CIOs who control the vast personal fortunes of some of the richest Americans.

And there's one more person I'd like you to get to know — our Banker of the Week!

1. Some of the sharpest minds left Wall Street's biggest banks to manage billionaires' money. They leave the fame and notoriety for their big-name bosses, but their investment decisions help these ultra-wealthy families grow their fortunes.

Take Jordan Stein, a 39-year-old former Citi banker. He is in charge of investing Marian Ilitch and her late husband Mike's money, which swelled after they founded Little Caesars Pizza in 1959. The Detroit-headquartered pizza chain has helped the family build an estimated $4.3 billion empire that now includes the Detroit Tigers baseball team and the MotorCity Casino Hotel.

The stadium that hosts my beloved Detroit Pistons basketball team is also named Little Caesars Arena.

Stein did not even know Little Caesars still existed when he was first approached for the job. But six years later, Stein has helped build a family office from scratch for one of the most prosperous families in the US.

Chief investment officers like Stein are part of an elite cohort of money managers who have helped rich families build their treasure chests.

Many got their start on Wall Street, but some come from a hodge-podge of different industries.

Here are 10 investment officers at the center of billionaires' wealth.

6. Cash App has expanded to retailers outside of Square's network as the company pushes toward "superapp" status. Shoppers can now use their Cash App balance to make purchases at select retailers.

10. And here's our Friday Banker of the Week. Meet Joshua Pang, a managing director at Carlyle who leads the investment firm's digital-infrastructure business.

Pang just wrapped up a $1 billion partnership with Tillman to support investments in US towers for telecommunications infrastructure. It comes after Pang worked on Carlyle's acquisition of data-center operator Involta.

Private-equity firms have piled more than $40 billion into deals for data centers this year, a record annual amount, according to PitchBook data.
