Podcast Interviews

“Insights with Vinny Catalano” is a New York Society of Security Analysts’ exclusive podcast series featuring informative and educational interviews with leading economic, market, geo political experts, and other key thought leaders. Each podcast will explore the major trends and themes at work and how they impact the investment decision-making process of investors. A special focus will be directed toward the “big picture” issues at work in the global economy. In this way, listeners will receive information that is complementary to the more traditional training and analysis provided, such as those offered by the CFA Institute.
