How Barack Obama Made His Fortune
Obama in 2007 bought two Bright Directions Age-Based Growth Plans, one for Sasha and the other for Malia. The plans will pay for their college educations. It's not clear which portfolio he went for -- the Balanced, Aggressive, or Growth option -- but each was worth between $50,000 and $100,000. By 2010, the portfolios were worth $100,000 to $200,000 each.
