Metropolitan Capital Advisors

Description:

Metropolitan Capital is a $400MM hedge fund founded by Fast Moneys Karen L. Finerman.

When Karen L. Finerman graduated from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in 1987, she and many of her classmates â€" both men and women â€" headed directly to Wall Street.

Karen L. Finerman runs her own hedge fund, Metropolitan Capital.
When she returned to campus for her 15-year reunion, she said she was amazed at how few of her women classmates were still working on the Street.

“Many career paths are inconsistent with a family life, like being a top corporate lawyer or investment banking; you have no control over your hours,” said Ms. Finerman, who runs her own hedge fund, Metropolitan Capital.

She started her career working as a trader, which, she said, seemed the most intellectually challenging. Now, she says, it allows her to balance work with family. (She has two sets of twins.) “The hours for trading are pretty set and they are not long.”
