    CFA Society New York in New York, NY

    Thinking Beyond the Transition for Veterans

    The CFA Society New York holds the 4th Annual Thinking Beyond the Transition for Veterans on November 1, 6-9pm. Registration for veterans & military personnel is free.

    The event explores how veterans who are focused on financial fields can better take inventory of their strengths, preferences, and tolerances to make fulfilling choices that give them greater staying power in their Wall Street roles. When veterans feel they are making meaningful contributions, employers are much more likely to see the lasting benefits of veteran hiring.

    The evening features a keynote discussion by Greg Parsons, CEO of Semper Capital Management, L.P. with $3 Billion AUM. Greg served in the United States Marine Corps and is a supporter of various veteran service organizations. Following the keynote, a panel will share examples of how they leveraged the skills learned while in military service to transition to lasting successful careers in finance. A Q&A session follows, concluding with a networking reception.
