Brian Friedman, the president of investment bank Jefferies, is in contract to buy an apartment at 910 Fifth Avenue for $16.5 million.

Friedman has already received co-op board approval at the white-glove building on the corner of 72nd Street, the New York Post reported. The Central Park-facing apartment takes up the entire 12th floor and includes four bedrooms, a wood-paneled library and a frescoed dining room.

Jefferies was rocked by scandal last year, when top banker Sage Kelly was embroiled in a messy divorce that briefly became the talk of Wall Street. [NYP] and [Curbed]Hiten Samtani
