Alumna Gariel Nahoum ’08 Named a 2014 Rising Star of Mutual Funds

Maurice A. Deane School of Law alumna Gariel Nahoum ’08, vice president and associate general counsel at AXA Equitable Funds Management Group, was named a 2014 Rising Star of the mutual fund industry by the editors of Institutional Investor’s Fund Industry Intelligence.

The Rising Stars of Mutual Funds are chosen annually by the editors and represent up-and-comers whose accomplishments in and contributions to the industry make them stand out among their peers and position them as future industry leaders. Nahoum is one of 13 professionals receiving this honor for 2014.

Nahoum credits Hofstra Law with giving her an “incredible foundation” and “constantly challenging me to springboard my career.”

She also credits fellow Hofstra Law alumnus and mentor Jay Baris ’78, a partner and the chair of the investment management practice at Morrison & Foerster LLP, for helping her start her career in investment management. The two worked together at Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP.

Nahoum will receive her award on March 27 at the 21st Annual Mutual Fund Industry Awards dinner at the Mandarin Oriental in Manhattan.

More information about the award and Nahoum’s career can be found on the Fund Industry Intelligence website.
