New York, NY, March 16, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- GoldenNetworking.com's Hedge Funds Leaders Forum 2010, "Generating Alpha in Challenging Times" (http://www.HedgeFundsLeadersForum.com), March 18th, DLA Piper, New York City, will discuss billionaire GOP gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman's potential conflicts of interest because of her investments (including Goldman Sachs' funds) at panel "If Goldman Sachs Mints Money like a Hedge Fund, Then it Probably is One at Hedge Funds Leaders Forum".
Reported The Angeles Times, "The first public glimpse into the financial portfolio of the former EBay chief came Thursday, when she filed an economic-interest disclosure required of candidates. The holdings present potential conflicts of interest for a governor. Among those investments are Goldman Sachs Distressed Opportunities Fund IV, in which Whitman has at least $1 million. The fund places capital in 'companies experiencing financial or operational distress, as well as other special situations.' She has more than $1 million in each of two funds with Goldman Sachs Mezzanine Partners, which provides money for leveraged buyouts, restructurings and other financial reorganizations in the Americas and Europe. One advantage of investing, according to the funds' website, is 'confidentiality and ease of execution, with no public disclosure'".
