Mezvinsky’s parents, who were both members of Congress, were friends with the Clintons over the years. Chelsea and Marc first met as young teenagers at a 1993 Democratic political retreat. While attending Stanford University, Mezvinsky and Chelsea Clinton remained friends, however the couple didn’t start dating until 2005.
Here’s what you need to know about Mezvinsky’s net worth, job and home:
1. He Has a Net Worth Estimated at $15 Million
Marc Mezvinsky is an investment banker who has a net worth estimated at $15 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Mezvinsky earned his net worth as an investment banker at the New York-based firm Goldman Sachs, and while working at the New York hedge fund company, 3G Capital.
2. Mezvinsky Closed The Hedge Fund He Co-Founded
Mezvinsky, announced he was closing his Eaglevale Hellenic Opportunity hedge fund in 2015 after losing “nearly 90 percent” of clients’ money, as reported by the New York Times.
Eaglevale Partners LP was founded by Marc Mezvinsky and two former colleagues from Goldman Sachs Group Inc., according to the Wall Street Journal.
Zero Hedge wrote about the connection between Mezvinsky’s Eaglevale Hellenic Opportunity, Hillary Clinton, and Lloyd C. Blankfein, CEO of The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.
Their article states:
… some of the firm’s earliest investors were Goldman partners, including Lloyd C. Blankfein, Goldman’s chief executive officer, who let Eaglevale use his name in marketing the flagship fund. Ironically this is in addition to the hundreds of thousands of dollars that Goldman paid to Marc’s mother-in-law. One almost wonders who ‘benefits’ Goldman was seeking to get out of this particular relationship.
