Trust Company of the West is a massive private money management company that manages mutual funds for Dean Witter. Henry Kissinger sits on its board. Day is the grandson of the founder of Superior Oil Co. Trust played major back-room roles in early to mid-‘90s takeover battles for Santa Fe Pacific Corp, Blockbuster Entertainment and Chrysler Corp. Trust took major hits in the mid-‘90s from: the Mexican peso devaluation; troubled real estate holdings; and an exodus of top managers. Thereafter, Trust aggressively pursued would-be buyers. Negotiations kept breaking down, in part because potential buyers said Trust overvalued its assets. Day is a pal of Clinton’s ex-Secretary of State Warren Christopher and once entertained the Democratic chief on his yacht.
