Biography

Senator Feinstein joined the U.S. Senate in 1992, when she was elected to fill the remaining two years of then-Senator Pete Wilson’s term. She was elected to her first six-year term in 1994 and serves on the Judiciary, Foreign Relations, and Rules Administration committees in the Senate. She pioneered the establishment of “sister cities” with major trading cities in Asia while mayor of San Francisco.

Senator Feinstein joined the USCPF Board in order to “develop a focus on the key issues in the U.S.-China relationship.” She further remarked, “The Foundation can play a key role in exposing U.S. policymakers to the people, perspectives, and information necessary to make informed choices on important issues in U.S.-China relations, such as Taiwan, human rights, nuclear proliferation, intellectual property rights, and trade. By facilitating exchanges and discussions between and among American and Chinese policymakers, academics, and other specialists, the Foundation can contribute to increased understanding between the two countries and a consensus-building dialogue on how best to approach this most important of relationships.”

Blum Capital Partners employs a value-oriented investment approach that seeks to invest in securities they believe are undervalued in the markets. The firm provides investment advisory services to various pooled investment vehicles (\"private funds\"). The private funds include private equity funds (\"strategic funds\") which invest in public and private securities, primarily in the U.S. and Canada. The private funds also include funds that Blum Capital establishes on a transaction-by-transaction basis (co-investment vehicles) to invest in a single security or transaction, either alone or alongside one or more of the strategic funds. Blum Capital invests on behalf of the strategic funds and co-investment vehicles in both public and private companies through a variety of formats including public strategic blocks (large stakes in public companies typically acquired through the open market), structured minority transactions, and control transactions. Investments are typically longer-term (2-3 years or longer) and may include unregistered debt, preferred equity securities, or convertible equity or debt securities of public or private companies, as well as common equity securities. While in the past, some of the private funds' guidelines allowed investments in publicly traded options, futures and derivatives for true hedging purposes, the private funds generally have not invested in such instruments, and the firm doesn't expect them to in the future.
