  87. “Unsurprisingly, the Observer does not mention similar proven accusations against Sandals and Stewart and especially that, in early 2013, Sandals was forced to pay US$12 million to the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) government to avoid criminal prosecution and/or admission of civil liability in relation to unspecified wrongdoing.”
  88.  
  89. “Given that the Observer is owed by Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, who also owns Sandals Resorts International (SRI), with whom Brown has been engaged in a long-running battle over the nonpayment of taxes owed to the government, the newspaper is clearly acting as Stewart’s mouthpiece in yet another attempt to meddle in regional elections.”

Schwarzman served on the international advisory board, which meets once a year to discuss the market environment, though it does not participate in the fund’s operational activities. “It’s always good to have friends when you are going to a place that you are not as familiar with,” Schwarzman announced upon joining the board. He left in 2014, as Trump was preparing for his presidential campaign.”

  215. Blackstone also ventured into other businesses, most notably investment management. In 1987 Blackstone entered into a 50–50 partnership with the founders of BlackRock, Larry Fink and Ralph Schlosstein. The two founders, who had previously run the mortgage-backed securities divisions at First Boston and Lehman Brothers, respectively, initially joined Blackstone to manage an investment fund and provide advice to financial institutions. They also planned to use a Blackstone fund to invest in financial institutions and help build an asset management business specializing in fixed income investments

  221. “THE two most successful entrepreneurs on Wall Street of the past two decades work on opposite sides of Park Avenue. Larry Fink, 65, is a Democrat whose hand is glued to a Starbucks cup and who runs BlackRock from 52nd Street. Stephen Schwarzman, 70, is a Republican who wears striped shirts with plain collars and runs Blackstone from between 51st and 52nd. The two are ex-colleagues, but have sharply opposing views on investment and management. Their trajectories illustrate how finance is changing. Mr Fink, once the underdog, is on top.”
  222.  
  223. “The final test is power. Mr Schwarzman has sway over a narrow group of businesses his firm controls, and he is a champion networker. But Mr Fink’s firm probably has more overall clout: it owns 5-7% of most big listed companies in the Western world, giving it enormous influence. Mr Fink has used this platform to urge bosses to invest more. BlackRock votes against the advice of the managers of the firms it invests in about 10% of the time.”
