The Student Story Series puts a spotlight on individuals who were successful during their time at the New York Institute of Finance and are now currently applying their acquired skills and knowledge in the real world.


Benjamin came across New York Institute of Finance offering a course in Fixed Income. He made the decision to enroll into the Fixed Income Professional Certificate class because he thought the class would benefit his occupation as a portfolio manager at Proshare. Proshare allows investors to buy a stock package instead of having to purchase single stocks to diversify their portfolio . Benjamin used the class to reinforce techniques he was using everyday.

When Proshares allowed him to take classes that will help him grow professionally, Benjamin looked no further to the New York Institute of Finance. He enrolled and completed the Fundamentals of Technical Analysis course.

"The professors have been great, I really like how they extend their hand to answer questions and help after the class. They're there to support and help us out".
