Trump's son-in-law and ex-White House senior adviser plans to establish money manager as soon as this fall

Jared Kushner, ex-adviser and son-in-law of former President Donald Trump announced that he will leave politics to create an investment firm that will focus, in particular, on companies that advance Arab-Israeli peace, according to numerous media outlets.

Kushner, who was a real estate executive before joining his father-in-law's team, will be founding a company called Infinity Partners. It will be based in Miami, where he lives with and his wife, Ivanka. 

The former president's son-in-law will also open an office in Israel that will promote trade ties between Israel, India, the Persian Gulf states, and North Africa.

As Trump's adviser, Kushner led negotiations for the normalization agreements between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco.

He was thus, one of the architects of the "Abraham Accords," considered a major diplomatic achievement of the Trump administration. While the agreements have helped develop trade and investment between several countries in the region, they have as yet, failed to advance peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

Kushner also played a leading role in Trump's election campaigns in 2016 and 2020, but he has indicated that he would not take part in a 2024 campaign if his father-in-law decided to take another run for the Oval Office.
