Jeffrey A. Goldstein is theObama Administration's nominee for Treasury undersecretary for domestic finance. He's been counselor to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner since July of 2009.
A former chief financial officer of the World Bank, Goldstein was most recently a managing director at Hellman & Friedman LLP, a private equity firm with stakes in a range of companies from insurance to health care.
It was reported in September of 2009 that Goldstein was obligated to pay at least $10.5 million to several investment partnerships, according to an ethics filing to the U.S. Office of Government Ethics. Goldstein had pledged $5 million to $25 million each for two funds run by his former firm, Hellman & Friedman LLC, and $500,000 to $1 million another of its partnerships, according to the form, which only included ranges for the values. Goldstein is expected to divest his partnership from Hellman & Friedman, but it's not yet determined whether the funds he owes will release him from his agreed-upon monetary commitments.
