The world's hedge fund capital has a new top cop for financial crimes.
New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman last week appointed Gary Fishman head of the Empire State's new Criminal Enforcement and Financial Crimes Bureau.
Fishman, a former prosecutor and private investigator, will focus on fraud and money laundering, and promised "more criminal prosecutions for large-scale financial crimes."
Fishman has worked for Schneiderman since 2012 as senior investigative counsel. A former prosecutor in the Manhattan district attorney's office, Fishman also ran his own investigation firm, Investigative Group International, with clients ranging from hedge funds to banks to law firms.
