Is this one of your funds?

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton has joined Avenue Capital Group, a $12 billion hedge fund manager whose founder has contributed to many Democratic Party campaigns, a person familiar with the matter said on Friday.

Clinton, 26, the only child of former President Bill Clinton and U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, has taken a post at the New York-based fund manager in an undisclosed capacity, the source said.

Clinton, who graduated from Stanford University in 2001 and studied philosophy at Oxford University, most recently worked at consultants McKinsey & Co. from 2003.


Philosophy @ Oxford huh? Well that should certainly qualify her to work at a hedge fund.

I think it was the work at McKinsey. McKinsey is guilty of lots things, but hiring dumb people isn't one of them.

So, being the daughter of a President had no bearing? Worked well for GWB to be the son of a President........

Undoubtedly family connections came into play. FD, if one of your kids were bright and ambitious, wouldn't you use your connections to help them? I sure would.

Chelsea Clinton graduated from Stanford with Highest Honors, earned a masters from Oxford, worked for McKinsey & Company as a consultant, and is well traveled. I don't think she needs anybody's help to get a great job.
