Dominique Strauss-Kahn to join Luxembourg investment firm; portfolio to include Russia, South Sudan

Wort.lu reports that “Former head of the International Monetary Fund Dominique Strauss-Kahn is to become an investment banker with a Luxembourg firm, according to a statement released by one of his lawyers.”

The firm is a boutique investment firm called Anatevka.  The New York Times notes that “At LSK, Mr. Strauss-Kahn is expected to continue his work as an economic adviser to the Serbian government, which was announced earlier this month. As part of that role, Mr. Strauss-Kahn is helping Serbia restructure its foreign debt, attract foreign investment and manage relations with the I.M.F.

Mr. Strauss-Kahn, a onetime presidential contender in France, will be working from the LSK offices in Luxembourg and Geneva. Apart from Serbia, LSK will also be working with clients in Morocco, South Sudan and Russia, Mr. Leyne said. Mr. Strauss-Kahn also joined the board of a banking subsidiary of Rosneft, the Russian state oil company, this year.”

Thierry Leyne is the current boss of Anatevka. Referring to Strauss-Kahn’s previous and ongoing scandals,  Slate comments If you thought all of that amounted to a track record of someone you wouldn’t exactly want as the face of your company, again, you’d be wrong. According to Bloomberg, Anatevka is set to change its name with DSK as a named partner in the revamped Leyne, Strauss-Kahn & Partners or “LSK.””
