OFFICE OVERLORD

RICHARD E. RAINWATER
CHAIRMAN
Rainwater Inc.
CHAIRMAN
Crescent Real Estate Equities
Ft. Worth

SUPERINVESTOR RAINWATER built his reputation managing investments for Texas' wealthy Bass family in the 1970s and '80s--and made millions for himself in the process. After leaving the Basses in the 1980s, the self-made billionaire went on to amass a vast portfolio. The reclusive Rainwater has racked up returns in excess of 70% a year as an individual investor. His $3.2 billion REIT is gobbling up office properties in Houston, Dallas, and Denver.
