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.
