Happy Birthday – Ring that NYSE Bell

[By staff reporters]

A 99-year-old financial advisor and holocaust survivor will be the oldest person to ring to the bell at the New York Stock Exchange in honor of her 100th birthday; today August. 2nd, 2015.

As a teen, Irene Bergman wanted to follow her private banker father to the Berlin stock exchange, but the Nazis chased them out of Europe in 1942. Now she is a financial advisor at Stralem & Co., overseeing institutional and individual clients, which she advises from her midtown apartment decorated with paintings from Dutch masters and pre-war European furniture.

Comprehensive Financial Planning Strategies for Doctors and Advisors: Best Practices from Leading Consultants and Certified Medical Planners(TM)

“In an era where doctors must have a solid understanding of the basics of financial management, this book is a must-have on every physician’s private book collection. Although not a substitute for a formal business education, this book will help physicians navigate effectively through the hurdles of day-to-day financial decisions with the help of an accountant, financial and legal advisors.

This book would make an excellent reference for teaching medical students and residents the basics of monetary management. I highly recommend this book and commend Dr. Marcinko and the Institute of Medical Business Advisors, Inc. on a job well done.”

Manuel J. Colón MD
