I hope you are enjoying the summer, whether at home or abroad! I have updates on three topics today as we continue to improve NYSSA’s infrastructure and event quality.
NYSSA is currently home to 14 committees composed of like-minded individuals who share professional interests and goals. They are formed around investment themes (such as alternative investments, global investing, sustainable investing, value investing), asset management themes (such institutional asset management and private wealth management), or functional areas (such as career development and membership). Often times, committees meet on a monthly basis to plan programs and social events, exchange ideas, or advance certain types of research.
Later this month, those of you attending committee meetings and other events at NYSSA will notice a second company name on the door of our Broadway facility: CenterCap Group, LLC. A boutique investment bank focused on the real estate industry, CenterCap Group has five employees and is NYSSA’s new subtenant. They will be subleasing a portion of our staff area over the next five years, allowing us to put previously vacant space to better use. The impact this will have on you, our members, will be minimal, apart from seeing a few more friendly faces in our hallways on a regular basis.
One concept that has come up repeatedly in recent discussion with our Board of Directors as well as CFA Institute is that of relevance.
The New York Society of Security Analysts is sad to announce the passing of longtime member William “Bill” Hayes, a vigorously active volunteer and former NYSSA president who died Wednesday at the age of 79.
Last week, I attended the 3rd Annual Awards Night of Portfolios with Purpose—a stock selection tournament in which participants compete on behalf of their favorite charities. I came away not only entertained, but inspired.
