Karen Finerman is an American businesswoman and television personality who is one of the few women to conquer the cut-throat, male-dominated world of hedge funds.
She began her career as a trader at First City Capital, a risk arbitrage fund. She later joined Donaldson, Lufkin and Jenrette where she became Lead Research Analyst for the Risk Arbitrage department.
In 1992, she co-founded New York-based hedge fund Metropolitan Capital Advisors, where she currently serves as CEO. Her first book, Finerman’s “Rules: Secrets I’d Only Tell My Daughters About Business and Life,” was released in June 2013. Finerman is also a panelist on the show Fast Money on CNBC.
Ms. Finerman is proud to serve on the board of The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and on the Undergraduate Executive Board at Wharton, her alma mater.
