THE REAL DEAL - April 26, 2017 11:20AM
Israeli billionaire Raz Steinmetz is a quiet investor in 15 Manhattan properties owned by Kushner Companies.
Steinmetz, who hails from one of Israel’s richest families, has been working with Kushner since at least 2012, Bloomberg reported. The Downtown Manhattan properties they jointly own are worth $150 million and the two sides also partnered on the Trump Bay Street project in Jersey City, according to Bloomberg.
The Steinmetz family made its fortune in the diamond trade. Raz’s uncle Beny, a diamond trader, has been under criminal investigation in the U.S. for allegedly bribing Guinean officials in exchange for mining rights.
