The New York City Professional Chapter of SmithSoc held its Summer Reception on the evening of Wednesday July 27 at a Midtown rooftop bar and lounge. The chapter was joined by Leon Cooperman, the founder of Omega Advisors and acknowledged to be one of the most successful hedge fund managers today. Mr. Cooperman was interviewed by Tom Keene of Bloomberg Radio. Their conversation touched on a variety of topics, including Mr. Cooperman's history in the field of finance, his advice for young professionals, and his personal philosophy of philanthropy.
