  WHO?   A Note from The Founder

Founder

I've spent my entire career (10+ years) on Wall Street, almost entirely as the only black girl on the trading floor. I used to pride myself on the fact that I was the only one, as if it were a prestigious badge of honor. Today,  I cringe. The lack of diversity and opportunities for people of color and women in finance are quite shameful to say the least. I see how important our contributions are to making others extremely wealthy, and how disproportionate our opportunities are to build  wealth ourselves. So I created The New Street. For people like me. For the "New" players ( minorities, women, millennials) who in are shaping culture, finance and the economic landscape as we know it.

One major focus of this platform is to provide education and financial literacy, specifically around wealth and investing. I decided to start the NEW STREET WEALTH blog after many inquiries from my peers about money and  investing. It always shocks me how my very successful friends (lawyers, doctors, marketing execs, fellow bankers, etc — the talented tenth, I’d call them)  know very little about building wealth outside of their salaried income. Meanwhile, It seemed so natural to me. I come from humble beginnings, and despite my day job, I have done very well building substantial wealth through proper lifestyle management and successful investing. The gracious feedback I receive from my friends has really been a testament to  how hungry this audience is for this information, and it also showed me how few resources are out there, FOR  THEM. And merely for the sake of representation, it really does matter that the messenger look like me. It matters! They continue to give me constant reinforcement that this content is needed and appreciated.​ And I thank them for their continued support!

As a black millennial woman, I represent everything that traditional Wall Street is not.  But my unique perspective comes with just as much advantage as it does disparity. Our society is so rich from the ideas of millennials, the influence from black culture and the unrelenting contributions of women. As a member of all of these groups, I recognize possibilities as the financial landscape changes that traditional Wall Street would never even acknowledge.  In my world of, we call these arbitrage opportunities!  So I stand with New Street to promote investing that move us forward, to challenge the status quo for a more inclusive access to capital , and to break wealth barriers. We, simply, must to do better. Thank you for trusting me to do the work. Welcome to The New Street!
