Jared Kushner is ready for his comeback. Hus financial comeback that it is. In case you were worried that he might be finished in the world of business and high finance, it seems that his new firm Affinity Partners has brought in more than $3 billion in new cash for investments.

Reuters broke the news, but there is still now word yet on who the investors are or where the money will go. When it was formed, Affinity Partners declares its intention to invest in Middle East projects. However, it seems to be somewhat of a cryptic firm as JBN could not even find a website for it. Jared hasn’t even posted anything on his Twitter account.

It has been almost a full year since Jared’s father in law Donald Trump left the White House after he lost his bid for reelection. And that meant that both he and his model wife who was the first daughter, Ivanka Trump, had to give up there White House jobs. There had been much talk of either of them pursuing a political future, running for Senate from Florida or governor of a state – probably a very small state – somewhere. But in the aftermath of the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol building the two seemed to slink away to a new home in Florida.

It was said that the couple was not really wanted in their old New York Social scene any more. And last summer Jared Kushner said that he was done with politics. Even Donald Trump had taken to blaming Jared for his loss as well as his failure to overturn the election results.

But Jared also annoyed his father in law by taking a lot of the credit for arranging the 2020 Abraham Accords which brought peace for the first time between Israel and the two Arab Gulf states of the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. The deal has already brought a windfall for the nations in new projects and business deals which also means a lot of money to be made by investors from all over the world.

And now this includes however gave Jared Kushner and his partners all that money to invest. It was said that Kushner would need to pursue new business opportunities after Trump left office because he had reportedly burned a lot of bridges – both business and social – back in the world of New York real estate.

While in Washington, Kushner’s critics accused both him and his wife of taking advantage of their White House positions to make a lot of money through business connections. It will now be interesting to see if anything comes out about Kushner already making deals before he left office.
