Perhaps unsurprisingly, the bulk of Daymond's investments on Shark Tank have been in apparel companies. However, Daymond's sense of humor and love of fishing might go some ways to explain why gag and recreation have outsized investment dollars when compared to the relative number of actual investments.

In terms of overall investment dollars, Daymond is solidly in the middle of the pack, never spending anywhere close to what Mark Cuban might invest but also not spending as little as Barbara Corcoran. He seems to prefer equity deals where the entrepreneur is open to licensing their products but has participated in two of the very view buyouts that have happened.

Additional Information

Daymond has also been a guest on NPRs How I Built This. On this episode, it's stated that Daymond's net-worth is $250,000,000 and that, at the time it was recorded, he had invested about $8,500,000 into companies on the show.
