Wale Adeosun Honored at 10th Annual Wall Street Hall of Fame Dinner
Wale Adeosun, CFA, treasurer and chief investment officer of Rensselaer, was inducted into the Wall Street Hall of Fame by the National Association of Securities Professionals-New York Chapter (NASP-NY) at its 10th Annual Wall Street Hall of Fame gala event Feb. 20 in New York City. The purpose of the event is to honor individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to excellence and diversity throughout their careers in the financial service industry. Representatives from corporate pension funds; city, county, and state pension funds; foundations and endowments; as well as financial services professionals; attended the gala.

According to NASP, “The Wall Street Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment in opening the doors for people of color in the world of finance. It is our continued goal to showcase these outstanding individuals, as well as learn from their expert practices.”

Adeosun was honored along with William Clark, director, Division of Investment, Department of the Treasury, State of New Jersey; and Robert Aguallo Jr., former director, Los Angeles City Employees’ Retirement System (LACERS).

NASP was founded in 1985 and represents the diverse interests of women and minorities in the financial services industry. The national headquarters is in Washington, D.C. NASP-NY’s chapter was founded in 1994 and serves more than 1,000 Wall Street and financial service professionals in the tri-state area.

The proceeds raised from the Wall Street Hall of Fame go to support The Wall Street Finance and Scholastic Training and Mentoring Program (FAST Track) and its associated scholarships, as well as other New York-NASP Foundation programs. This program provides a vehicle whereby high school students can interact with industry leaders who can introduce them to a variety of disciplines on Wall Street. The program also provides college scholarship funds to those young people who have shown an interest, through their grades and curriculum choices, in pursuing careers in the financial services industry.
