Perihelion is a brainchild of David Murdoch, a legendary investor and philanthropist, who made his fortune in the 1980s and 1990s thanks to his almost preternatural ability to recognize trends and invest in tech companies that would later come up with future-shaping technologies.
On the outside, Perihelion exists to manage Murdoch’s vast portfolio of diverse businesses, from an industrial data analysis center to his small private airlines. While many of his businesses use their own separate brands, the Perihelion logo has been prominent enough for it to become the primary brand associated with Murdoch’s enterprises.
A separate Perihelion branch also manages Murdoch’s stock exchange transactions and acquisitions, which seems to be the primary source of the holding’s income. Some have compared Perihelion to a predatory hedge fund – in Chicago, or anywhere else in the world for that matter, you don’t make it without making at least some enemies.
More information about Perihelion will become available during later stages of the Storyline Campaign. Complete Storyline Campaign missions to find out more about Perihelion.
