Spring brought us several wins! As you may be aware, events are always taking place at NYSSA. Each and every event has a special place within the society as they carry with them a unique member value. We are excited to feature the two events that have recently received special recognition.
With immense pride, the New York Society of Security Analysts is pleased to announce that Seton Hall University finished with a top mark at the 2016-17 CFA Research Challenge Americas Competition, capturing one of only four spots reserved at the Global Finals, set to take place in Prague on April 28th. The other Americas winner, hailing from the Dominican Republic, is the Barna Business School.
The 2nd Annual Single Family Office Conference featured a high-level discussion on major investment themes and global market dynamics from the perspective of single family offices. Single family offices are by definition running one family’s capital. They are therefore inherently not commercial in the sense that they are not looking to run third party capital and consequently generally prefer to be opaque and obscure investors and allocators. It is not often that third parties are given the opportunity to peak behind their proverbial 'hoods.' This panel will provide a rare glimpse at the allocators, their methodologies, investments and market views. It is not every day that one has the opportunity to gain first degree insight into the single family office space.
On Thursday, March 30th, the New York Society of Security Analysts (NYSSA) hosted its Attracting Institutional Assets: The Importance of Operational Due Diligence program. Held as a service to all members and the investment community, this event stands as a critical opportunity to learn how to successfully recognize and adapt to the risks involved with business operations. This event brought together upwards of 60 attendees and featured notable panelists and speakers from various executive positions associated with Due Diligence, including, but not limited to, Managing Directors, COOs and CEOs.
On Thursday, March 23rd, the New York Society of Security Analysts (NYSSA) hosted its Gender as a Profitable Corporate Strategy Event. Part of NYSSA’s effort to honors Women’s History Month, this event also marks the first of several in the “Putting Investors First” campaign, an effort to provide better service to their members’ clients and companies each and every day. The event brought together upwards of 100 attendees and featured notable speakers from various areas of finance, some of which include, but are not limited to, investment management, equity research, and quantitative analysis.
NYSSA works closely with CFA Institute and member Societies around the world to be sure all our activities shape a more trustworthy industry.
Providing an independent and objective forum for leading professionals to sharpen knowledge allows members to provide better service to their clients and companies. We also join with CFA Institute each year to shape a more trustworthy financial industry through the “Putting Investors First Campaign”.
