While working for the U.N., Malloch-Brown would rent an apartment from Soros when on assignment in New York. In 2007, he became vice president of Soros hedge fund company Quantum Funds, appointed vice chairman of Soros Fund Management, and vice chairman of the Open Society Institute (the former name of OSF).
