Ken Griffin is on a real-estate spending spree that's seen him break a major record in the first weeks of 2019.

Most recently, he dished out $238 million for a sprawling New York City apartment. The 23,000-square-foot penthouse unit at 220 Central Park South is now the most expensive home ever sold in the US; it shattered the previous record, a $137 million Hamptons home purchased by Barry Rosenstein in 2014, by more than $100 million.

But that's just the tip of the real estate iceberg.
