THE 14TH ANNUAL JIM AND JUDY O’BRIEN CAPITAL MARKETS COLLOQUIUM

On February 12, 2020, approximately 300 students, faculty and guests attended the 14th Annual Jim and Judy O’Brien Capital Markets Colloquium, which was held at the Walsh Library. The colloquium, co-sponsored by the University Libraries and the Stillman School of Business, was held for the first time at the library, which proved to be an excellent location for the day’s events.

15 concurrent workshops ran from 9:30 a.m.to 6:15 p.m. Some highlights of the day’s events included an opportunity to apprentice with a representative from Napier Park, a credit platform that has 14 billion dollars in assets; a workshop on the growing sector of e-sports; and the dress rehearsal of the 3-time champion CFA Team ((note Seton Hall has won the Chartered Financial Analyst Research Challenge 3 times and placed 11 times).

Jim O’Brien ’82 and Ned May delivered the keynote address.  Jim O’Brien is the Senior Managing Partner of Napier ParkGlobal Capital and the recipient of the 2013 Many Are One Humanitarian Award from Seton Hall.
