Cvent Transition Guide


A co-sponsored event, presented by CFA Society New York, the Gabelli Center for Global Security Analysis, and the Museum of American Finance.

Bob O’Shea is the quintessential Fordham student. A scrappy kid from New Jersey, his grandmother worked as a maid at the Waldorf Astoria in midtown Manhattan, his father was a New York City cop, and he himself was accepted to Fordham on a track and field scholarship. O’Shea’s success on Wall Street is the epitome of the American dream. Michael Gatto, an adjunct professor at Fordham, will be interviewing O’Shea about his meteoric rise on Wall Street. O’Shea was offered partnership at Goldman Sachs at age 29, making him the second-youngest partner in the firm’s history. Then, as a second act, O’Shea co-founded Silver Point Capital, a credit and special situations hedge fund, in 2002. He subsequently grew the firm from $120 million in assets under management to $15 billion.

Professor Gatto will ask O’Shea to speak about several topics, including his career and the things that made him so successful, his views of the current credit markets, and his advice for students and young professionals on how to build a successful career in credit.
