Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund who last year became chairman of a Paris-traded bank, is planning to raise $2 billion for a hedge fund he’s setting up...The move is part of efforts Strauss-Kahn, or DSK as he’s known in France, has been making to rebuild his post-IMF life after he was charged in 2011 with criminal sex, attempted rape, sexual abuse, unlawful imprisonment and forcible touching of a chambermaid at the Sofitel hotel in Manhattan. Strauss-Kahn, 64, denied the charges, which were later dropped, and he settled the maid’s lawsuit in 2012. Strauss-Kahn joined LSK & Partners last year as chairman to help develop the Luxembourg-based company’s franchises. The hedge fund he’s setting up, called DSK Global Investment, will benefit from “academic research and practical knowledge, both stemming from Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s experience as a public figure,” Mohamad Zeidan, LSK & Partners’ chief operating officer, said in a phone interview from Shanghai.[Bloomberg]
