Career bio

In 1980s, Elyse worked as a sales trader form Sandler O’Neill & Partners. After that, she switched to bond trading. After some time as a freelance writer, Slaine is now presenting herself as a full-time cryptocurrency trader since 2016.

Although active in investing world herself, she also made a fortune from her past relationships. She divorced a David Slaine from an infamous Galleon Fund and she also led a legal battler over an expensive NYC apartment with one of her ex-boyfriends children.

Family & dating

That brings us to her personal life. Elyse married a high-profile manager from Galleon hedge fund, David Slaine. In 1996, she gave birth to their daughter named Nicole. But Elyse’s and David’s marriage was put under a huge strain after her husband was accused of insider trading in 2007.

He didn’t go to prison only because he became an informant. But they got divorced in 2013. Charismatic Elyse didn’t stay single for long. Her new boyfriend was again an investor. She started dating hedge fund manager Donald Drapkin. While getting serious, they purchased upscale apartment worth 4 million dollars. Yet their relationship ended short after and when Donald passed away during a skiing accident, his kids sued Elyse for the real estate.

As of 2020, Elyse Slaine’s is married again. She had a beautiful wedding in October 2019. Her current husband Reinhold Gebert is a COO and CRO at capital market firm Teza Technologies. So another finance market expert. Elyse seems to have a type!

Sources of income, salary

Elyse is currently self-employed and she presents herself on her LinkedIn account as a cryptocurrency trader. But we can’t tell for sure how profitable she actually is of if she is just playing with the big money from divorce settlement.

Slaine also joined lucrative RHONY franchise. Although she is not officially a part of the main cast yet, she seems to have an important role on season 12 in 2020. She is friends with several other housewives, including Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin. This alone should create enough reasons for her to keep coming back on screen.

Unlike most RHONY stars, Elyse’s Instagram account doesn’t have many followers (yet?). So monetizing it wouldn’t make much sense for now and she is mostly just sharing pictures from her personal life. Like recently, when she posted a beautiful picture from her wedding. She and Reinhold are standing on it under a gorgeous wedding arch, holding hands, and all that on a beach.
