Hillary's Son-in-Law Closes Hedgefund Which Bet on Greek Economic Revival After Losing 90% of Its Value

The best one can say is that it was a niche product that someone had to offer -- after all, there must have been some people who thought that the Greek Way of Economics would prevail. Why not sell them something? Morons need to buy something too.

Yet... I don't know, I can't help but feel that Hillary Clinton's son in law was among the morons betting on the Greek economic revival.

Chelsea Clinton's husband is reportedly closing his Greek hedge fund. The news from Marc Mezvinsky comes after the fund is said to have lost 90 percent of its value.

"It was a hedge fund portfolio pitched by Hillary Clinton's son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky, as an opportunity to bet on a Greek economic revival," the New York Times reports.

"Now, two years later, the Greece-focused fund is shutting down, after losing nearly 90 percent of its value, according to two investors with direct knowledge of the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity.


"Investors were told last month that the fund would close. The fund, Eaglevale Hellenic Opportunity, had raised $25 million from investors to buy Greek bank stocks and government debt.

They sold as well as penis futures at a women's soccer team.

"Eaglevale Partners, a Manhattan hedge fund firm founded by Mr. Mezvinsky and two former Goldman Sachs colleagues, raised money for the Hellenic fund at a time when some on Wall Street had hopes for a revival in the Greek economy. For a time, Mr. Mezvinsky appeared at hedge fund conferences promoting the Greece investment thesis."
