Jared Kushner, a former top White House advisor President Donald Trump who helped manage Middle East policy for his father-in-law, is set to launch a new investment firm based in his new home in Miami with offices in Israel.
The move could take Kushner, who served as a key advisor for Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, away from politics for the foreseeable future, sources familiar with the plan said on Wednesday.
The move takes Kushner away from real estate, where he took on an empire built by his own father, and connects him to a region where he helped coax key allies toward inking the Abraham Peace Accords forging new commercial ties with Israel.

Kushner, the former chief executive of Kushner Companies, who served as the Republican president's senior adviser in the White House, is in the final stages of launching an investment firm called Affinity Partners that will be headquartered in Miami, according to sources.
The revelations come as Kushner and Ivanka have each taken quiet public roles since the January 6th Capitol riot and Donald Trump's election overturn efforts.
This week the Washington Post editorial board called for a select committee probing the riot to subpoena Jared and Ivanka to answer questions about what Trump new about the mob that stormed the Capitol.
Kushner has also been working on a book about his White House tenure, where he advised Trump on almost all of his key priorities.
It is set to come out in 2022, and he reportedly got a seven-figure advance, CNN reported.
