NYSSA is the New York Society of Security Analysts. The organization has been a leading forum for the investment community since 1937. That year, a group of security analysts turned their casual lunch gatherings into a series of regular meetings. They held an organizational luncheon in a private dining room of the New York Chamber of Commerce. It was there that NYSSA was conceived, with a membership of approximately 20 analysts, including Benjamin Graham, the “father of securities analysis” and one of the most influential persons in the history of finance. Today, with almost 9,000 members, NYSSA is one of the largest of the more than 142 societies worldwide that comprise CFA Institute.

The CFA Program is the gold standard in financial analysis programs, recognized throughout the world with over 100,000 Charterholders.
