John Henry net worth: John Henry is an American entrepreneur, businessman and investor and sports team owner who has a net worth of $2.5 billion. He is notable for owning the Boston Globe, the Boston Red Sox, the Liverpool F.C. and co-owning Roush Fenway Racing. He earned his first fortune trading agricultural futures. In 1981 he launched his own firm, John W. Henry and Company.

He was born on September 13, 1949 in Quincy, Illinois on a soybean farm. His family moved to Apple Valley, California when he was 15, and he graduated from Victor Valley High School in Victorville, California. He attended Victor Valley College and then the University of California at Riverside as well as UC Irvine and UCLA. He did not graduate because he was performing on the road in two rock bands, Elysian Fields and Hillary.

Henry started trading corn and soybean futures to learn the basics of hedging the price risk of holding an inventory of these commodities. In 1981 he founded John W. Henry and Company in a small office across the street from the airport in Irvine, California. He began marketing his management to the largest commodity brokerage firms in America. That proved so successful by 1983 that he moved to considerably larger quarters at Fashion Island in Newport Beach. In 1989, Henry moved to Westport, Connecticut.

Henry, a former owner of the Florida Marlins, bought the Boston Red Sox in 2002 with the express goal of "breaking the Curse of the Bambino." The Red Sox went on to win World Series titles in 2004, 2007, 2013 and 2018.

In October 2010 Henry's Fenway Sports Group took over Liverpool F.C.
