New York (HedgeCo.Net) – Hedge fund manager and philanthropist Emmanuel Lemelson, an American-born Greek Orthodox priest, met with the pope last week as part of an official Orthodox Church delegation in Constantinople, Turkey.
Fr. Lemelson is the Chief Investment Officer of Lemelson Capital Management, a private investment firm that is the sole sponsor and general partner of The Amvona Fund, which has several times been named as the world’s top performing hedge fund.
During the weekend visit, Pope Francis met with His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and his delegation, participating in services associated with the Feast day of St. Andrew.
“More progress has been made towards reconciliation of the two Churches under the leadership of His All-Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew and Pope Francis than has been made in nearly a millennium, and this progress comes at a critical moment,” Fr. Lemelson said. “To the outside world, this continued separation is not only unacceptable, but a scandal, I think we should see this as not something immediate, but this is an important start.”
