Hedge fund legend Steven A. Cohen versus the Feds. The Feds win the first round but Cohen will soon be back in the game. This is the story in “Black Edge: Inside Information, Dirty Money, and the Quest to Bring Down the Most Wanted Man on Wall Street.”
Author Sheelah Kolhatkar relives the challenges faced by federal prosecutors to shut down insider trading by Steven Cohen’s hedge fund S.A.C. Capital. Cohen, a secretive, intense, and highly successful trader, made billions for himself and his investors from short term investments and trading; that is, until Preet Baharara and his New York team of prosecutors found an angle to shut down S.A.C. to investors. Join us and hear the story of Cohen and his associates, how they succeeded for years, and how the government almost stopped Cohen for good.
The evening will include a Q&A session with Sheelah Kolhatkar led by Jesse J. Greene Jr. Senior Fellow at the Richman Center and Executive in Residence.
