Omeed Malik, an accomplished Wall Street executive, is now reportedly planning on contributing a minimum of $100,000 and raise more than $3 million in support of Donald Trump’s campaign.

Malik also happens to be one of the key financial backers behind Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ recent unsuccessful effort to topple the former president in the GOP presidential primary.

Malik, the chief executive officer of Farvahar Partners, stated in an interview that he now intends to utilize his vast network to assist in financing Trump’s presidential campaign, following his work in raising funds and providing commentary for independent candidates such as DeSantis and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Until recently, he identified as a Democrat and resided in New York City.

In addition to serving on the Council of Foreign Relations and donating frequently to both the Democratic and Republican causes, he established a conventional Wall Street background with employment at Bank of America and the corporate law firm Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP.

Currently, he is preoccupied with exerting a significant influence on the 2024 election.

Malik intends to contribute at least $3 million to Trump’s presidential campaign, according to a source.

He raised the exact same sum for DeSantis’ gubernatorial campaign in 2022. Permission was granted to the advisor in order to disclose private efforts to assist Trump.

State campaign finance records indicate that DeSantis’ allied political action committee received contributions in excess of $100,000 from Malik during his successful reelection campaign in 2022.

Malik co-hosted a presidential campaign event for DeSantis in the affluent Hamptons neighborhood of New York.

Malik intends to contribute at least $100,000 to a Trump fundraising committee, but has not yet determined which one, according to the advisor.

The advisor added that he intends to meet privately with Trump in Florida to discuss their fundraising strategy. Malik is an existing member of Mar-a-Lago, the private club owned by the former president located in Palm Beach.

Blake Masters, a candidate for Congress and an associate of Republican financier Peter Thiel, and Nick Ayers, a former chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence who recently endorsed Trump, are also individuals in Malik’s sphere of influence.
