Abby Joseph Cohen is president of the Global Markets Institute and senior investment strategist at Goldman Sachs. That prestigious title does not give the full picture of a legendary Wall Street figure who has had enormous influence on the stock market and the American economy since the 1990s. Mrs. Cohen has been recognized as a leader in US Portfolio strategy for two decades, and was previously ranked No. 1 by numerous industry surveys. Her career has been the subject of a Harvard Business School case study and a BusinessWeek cover story. Despite the pressures of being a highly sought after financial markets expert, Mrs. Cohen has found time to lend her skills to other pursuits, such as chairing the Board of Trustees of the Jewish Theological Seminary, serving as a board trustee of the Smithsonian Institution and as a Presidential Councillor at Cornell University. She serves on the White House-appointed Innovation Advisory Board for economic competitiveness.
Abby and her husband David are dedicated supporters of Hillel International. David is Vice Chair of the Board of Directors, and together they serve on the Board of Governors which offers counsel and provides substantial financial support to Hillels nationally and internationally. They received Hillel’s Renaissance Award in recognition of their leadership.
