SpaceX is increasingly in the sights of Elon Musk's $251 Billion fortune

Spyridon Mentzas is Elon Musk's investor to help him cement his position as the richest person in the world.

Mentzas was a co-head of equity at Mizuho Securities and set out to create his own 

firm solely for the purpose of purchasing shares in SpaceX, Musk’s rocket company. 

His Hijojo Partners took three years to get a stake in the company, which was valued at $125 billion in its most recent funding round.

He is not the only one vying to get a piece in what is now the most valuable US startup. Edoardo Zarghetta is a fund manager at Miami-based PreIPO Club. 

He started purchasing SpaceX shares in the secondary market two years ago. They still trade at premiums exceeding 10%.
