US billionaire ‘approaching divorce settlement’

Divorce|October 7th 2015

A billionaire hedge fund manager may be approaching settlement with his estranged wife, CNN Money reports.

Ken Griffin is founder and CEO of the multi-billion Citadel hedge fund in Chicago, Illinois. After 11 years with wife Anne Dias, he filed for divorce last summer. Anne requested $1 million in monthly expenses as the divorce proceedings progressed. They had been due to go to trial this week but instead the couple entered settlement talks.

According to the site, a prenuptial agreement signed by the couple before their marriage has been a bone of contention. Anne Dias claims she was coerced into signing this and argues that it should therefore be thrown out. The husband’s lawyers, unsurprisingly, insist that the agreement should be honoured.

The couple have three children so child support and living arrangements will also be under discussion.

    This is like Groundhog Day – the Judge should charge all costs against her for this nonsense – here is an excerpt from her CV:-
    .

    She graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in 1992.
    She received an MBA from Harvard Business School in 1997.
    She is a member of Harvard Business School’s Board of Dean’s Advisors, a Director of the Museum of Modern Art, and a Trustee of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and the Civic Federation of Chicago.
    She has written on foreign policy issues for the Financial Times

    It’s comical how ‘strong independent women’ can become ‘poor downtrodden weaklings who were bullied into signing a prenup’ when money is about 🙂
    .
    I mean, the prenup terms would only give her $65,000,000 – how would she cope ?
