I once drove Mandelbrot to Epstein’s mansion in NY. Had never heard of him & nobody else knew him yet Epstein was a publicity hog. Warned M. maybe laundering or mafia, not finance, shd avoid him.
There are financiers who leave no footprint but those never have public life.

2/ Epstein claims his activity is "Managing money for people with net worth > 1 bil". DUBIOUS.
Family office not an easy business; very unprofitable, people underpaid: billionaires have zillions of financiers watching their money. Plus the customer base is narrow.
