Farkas studied commercial engineering at the University of Santiago, Chile. In the 80s he emigrated to the United States and made a living working in show business as a piano player while traveling throughout the US. He also worked in several Caribbean cruising companies until the death of his father. Then, Farkas returned back to Chile to manage the family business. Farkas has stakes in several industries, the mining sector being the most important.

A recent lawsuit has been brought against Farkas by his Australian partners accusing him of illegal appropriation of funds. The lawsuit argues that he has inappropriately used the companys money for personal charity acts.
