She earned a B.A. in history from William & Mary and is a member of the University's 1918 Society. The couple is blessed with three sons together, Nick, Zach, and Clay.
NZC Guggenheim is the name of one of Boehly's credit funds where the NZC stands for his sons' initials. That is because an investor desired reassurance from Boehly that he would treat it seriously, and thus he named it after his loved ones.
Todd Boehly Becomes The Front Runner For Chelsea Takeover
Todd Boehly has emerged as the leading frontrunner to become the new owner of Chelsea. He claims that if he becomes charged, supporters will be at the club's heart and that he will mimic Liverpool's use of statistics to improve Chelsea's transfer dealings.
His team appears to be a long way from convincing the UK Government that they can complete a quick, easy transaction that will appeal to fans.
To begin, the financials are certain: Boehly's investment firm, Eldridge, manages $40 billion in assets; Wyss is a medical device manufacturer with a personal fortune of $5 billion; and they have enlisted Iranian-born US citizen Behdad Eghbali at Clearlake Capital Group, which manages $60 billion in assets.
