Rhodes Scholar surprises student


Satellite Asset Management chief and former Rhodes Scholar, Lief Rosenblatt, recently had the honor of naming one of a dozen new inductees to the prestigious academic club.

Rosenblatt called candidate Lev Sviridov to Satellite Asset Management's Fifth Avenue office, for what the 22-year-old City University of New York student thought was simply another interview for the award that brings priceless prestige along with a $35,000 annual stipend to study at Oxford University. Instead, Rosenblatt surprised the Russian-born New York city resident, who had spent two years homeless, with the news that he had won the Rhodes scholarship.
