Timothy Geithner To Speak at New Jersey Pension Meeting

New Jersey

Ex-U.S. Secretary of Treasury Timothy Geithner will speak at Thursday’s meeting of the New Jersey State Investment Council, the entity that oversees the state’s pension investments.

From NJ.com:

Geithner is president of private equity firm Warburg Pincus, which counts New Jersey as a client.

“It’s an important relationship for them, and it’s certainly an important relationship for us,” said Tom Byrne, vice chairman of the investment council.

Watchdogs are hoping the meeting will also mark the release of a long-awaited audit into the potential pay-to-play violations of Charlie Baker.

From NJ.com:

Seven months before the state decided to invest $15 million from its pension fund with the firm General Catalyst, which listed Baker as an “entrepreneur in residence,” Baker had donated $10,000 to the New Jersey Republican Senate Committee. The state has since sold its investment with the firm.

The results of the audit have been delayed for months. The investment council announced the audit in May, saying it was expected to take several weeks.
