Would you take a job in Eliot Spitzer's new real estate investment fund?
A New York newspaper reported recently that the deposed governor and former New York State Attorney General sounded out allies in the labor movement about eventually investing pension money in a planned venture that would seek bargains in the battered real estate sector. Spitzer apparently would manage the fund himself - thus following in the footsteps of his father, who built a Manhattan real estate empire in the 1960s and 70s.
Bottom-fishing in real estate is a popular activity of late, drawing some of the biggest names in the private equity world.
There's no word on whether Spitzer will be doing any hiring for the fund. If he does, would you think about joining his team?
