Clinton Is The Top Recipient Of Contributions From The Largest Banking Institutions. "And, as The Huffington Post previously reported, Clinton is the top recipient among the presidential candidates of contributions from the largest banking institutions." (Paul Blumenthal, "Post 9/11 Rebuilding Isn't The Only Reason Hedge Funds Support Hillary Clinton," The Huffington Post, 11/17/15)

Clinton Has Raised $204,202 From Hedge Fund Executives, Far More Than Any Other 2016 Candidate.

The Clinton's Helped Their Son In Law, Marc Mezvinksy, Start Up His Own Hedge Fund With Their Rolodex Of Wealthy Friends

The Hedge Fund, Eaglevale Partners LP, Was Founded By Chelsea Clinton's Husband Marc Mezvinksy. "The hedge fund co-founded by Bill and Hillary Clinton's son-in-law suffered losses tied to an ill-timed bet on Greece's economic recovery, according to documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. Eaglevale Partners LP, founded by Marc Mezvinsky and two former colleagues from Goldman Sachs Group Inc., told investors in a letter sent last week they had been 'incorrect' on Greece, helping produce losses for the firm's main fund during two of the past three years, according to the letter. Mr. Mezvinsky married Chelsea Clinton, the former first daughter, in 2010." (Rob Copeland, "Hedge Fund Co-Founded By Chelsea Clinton's Husband Suffers Losses Tied To Greece," The Wall Street Journal , 2/3/15)

The New York Times: " Tens Of Millions Of Dollars Raised By Eaglevale Can Be Attributed To Investors With Some Relationship Or Link To The Clintons." " When Mr. Mezvinsky and his partners began raising money in 2011 for a new hedge fund firm, Eaglevale Partners, a number of investors in the firm were longtime supporters of the Clintons, according to interviews and financial documents reviewed by The New York Times. Tens of millions of dollars raised by Eaglevale can be attributed to investors with some relationship or link to the Clintons." (Matthew Goldstein And Steve Eder, "For Clintons, A Hedge Fund In The Family," The New York Times, 3/22/15)

According To SEC Filings, Eaglevale Partners Has An Offshore Fund In The Cayman Islands Established in 2011 Called "Eaglevale Partners Offshore Fund Ltd." (Securities And Exchange Commission, Form D, File No. 021-177047, Accessed 12/9/15)
