Jared Kushner allegedly planning to leave politics, launch investment firm

Jared Kushner intends to start a Miami-based investment firm called Affinity Partners, a person familiar with Kushner’s plans for the business has announced.

Kushner’s transition to finance means he will not be involved in politics in the foreseeable future, the source confirms. Reuters was first to report Kushner’s plans. No information is available yet as to whose funds Kushner will be investing, and where those investments will be made. Prior to working in the White House, Kushner had no political experience. He served as CEO of his family’s real estate development firm, Kushner Properties.

Kushner has spent the last six months with his family in Miami writing a book about his White House experiences that is expected to be published early next year. Kushner helped broker deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco in a six-month flurry last year. He also helped negotiate a new US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement.

Kushner remains close with his father-in-law, the sources said, but by re-entering the private sector he distancing himself from politics for the foreseeable future. Kushner and his family have been spending the summer as Trump’s next-door neighbor at Trump’s golf property in Bedminster, New Jersey.
