Harvard Student Founds Finance Non-Profit That Hosts Annual NYC Conference
Angel Onuoha, a senior at Harvard University studying economics and computer science, is the CEO and founder of BLK Capital Management, a black-owned and student-run hedge fund employing more than 200 analysts from across the nation with funding from Wall Street institutions including Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase & Co. and Bridgewater.
Onuoha - who’s spent summers in private equity and investment banking at Blackstone and Goldman Sachs - founded BLK Capital Management as a freshman as a non-profit organization to expose young African Americans to the field of active investment, and offer an education to young African-American students interested in investing and fund management.
BLK Capital Management maintains members from across the nation, and manages a long-short equity fund that invests capital across the globe and constantly seeks to deliver absolute returns, outperforming industry standards.
BLK Capital Management’s 2020 National Conference was being held in February at the JPMorgan Chase headquarters in New York, NY and JPMorgan Chase’s Brooklyn office. It was the 5th annual conference Onuoha and BLK Capital Management has presented.
The conference hosted more than 80 students from across the country and featured networking seminars, keynote speakers, and diversity panels. The two days culminated in a stock pitch competition with the winners honored in a ceremony before the closing of the conference, which is sponsored by Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, Fidelity, Point72, JP Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Vanguard and Blackstone.
In conjunction with this year’s conference, BLK Capital Management launched its scholarship competition for the Onuoha Fellowship, a four-year program for outstanding African-American high school seniors who exhibit academic excellence, leadership capabilities, and a passion for bringing world-changing entrepreneurial ideas to life.
Fifteen deserving students received a monetary scholarship and were matched with a mentor to guide them through their undergraduate experience. They, upon entering their freshman year in college, will also participate in a six-month education program covering the basics of financial literacy and investing.
“The annual BLK Spring Conference is one of the hallmark events of our program. Students from all over the country have the amazing opportunity to form life-long bonds with each other. They also have the chance to perform in a stock pitch competition in front of judges who have been in the financial industry for years,” notes the now 20-year old Onuoha, who’s also founder of Zuvy, a mobile app that allows college students to create and request services for and from each other.
“The feedback and experience that this opportunity provides to the students is invaluable and is where you will see first-hand the strength of diversity.”
