Stevens, a longtime partner at Silicon Valley venture capital firm Sequoia, started his own firm, S-Cubed Capital, in 2012. He says that because he started with a basket full of tech stocks from his time at Sequoia—the firm was an early backer of Yahoo, Google and LinkedIn—he’s been working to diversify his holdings into energy, healthcare and real estate, including senior housing. “If we do have a tech recession, tech stocks could take a 30% or 40% hit,” he says.

Yarbrough sold his Video Gaming Technologies for $1.28 billion in cash in 2014 and has since been investing the proceeds. He makes most of his own investment decisions. About half of his money is in bonds with short-term maturities. One-fourth is in technology stocks such as Nvidia, Google and Facebook. “It’s what I escorts in Tokyo understand and am comfortable with,” says Yarbrough. A buy-and-hold investor, he’s owned Microsoft for 30 years and Apple for over a decade.

The rest of his money is in alternative investments such as info private equity, lending funds and hedge funds, though he’s selling off the latter due to low volatility and poor returns. “They are fantastic for hedge fund managers, but bad for investors,” he says.
