Matrix Co-Founder Buys $19M NYC Apartment

Mar 4 2014 | 10:27am ET

Matrix Capital Management had a banner year in 2013, and co-founder David Goel is celebrating with a new pied-a-terre.

Goel paid $19 million for a three-bedroom apartment on New York’s Fifth Avenue. The residence spans the building’s sixth floor and features a library, two fireplaces and “his and hers ensuite marble-clad baths.”

Goel bought the apartment from Seagram Co. heir Charles Bronfman. He had sought $19.9 million for the place. Bronfman paid $21 million for it in 2010.

The building is at Fifth Avenue and 62nd Street.

Matrix returned 56% through October last year, and 20% in 2012.
