After a stellar career of over 20 years with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, we are extremely pleased to add Angela Freyman, MBA, EA to our team. Angela has graduated with honors from New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business.

She has traveled the world as part of the scholarship, and received a Bachelor Degree with double-majors in Economics and Finance, taught by the most revered professors in this industry.
Upon graduation, Angela immediately was hired by the Markets Group at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, where she helped carry out the nation’s monetary policy by working with senior professionals in analyzing the country’s financial and economic growth, contributing to the Group’s recommendations for the monetary policy decisions, which were presented to the Board of Governors, led by Alan Greenspan at the time, and subsequently – by Ben Bernanke. The monetary policy decisions of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve were then carried out by the staff of the Markets Group, and Angela was proud to be a part of this important process. Angela has worked in portfolio management, foreign exchange, Central Bank foreign currency holdings, and fixed income/Treasury markets areas. She analyzed as well as executed complex transactions with billions of dollars at stake, calculated portfolio risk, authored research materials, and interacted with all levels of management and clientele across the Wall Street’s financial institutions.
While working full time, Angela was accepted into the NYU Stern’s Graduate School of Management, which she attended part time while working – and also starting a family. No wonder her kids are doing so well in school – they were exposed to learning since before they were born! With little sleep and a determination to succeed, Angela earned the Master of Business Administration designation from one of the top business schools in the nation with a double-major of CPA-Track Accounting and Finance. Her high GPA score is a testament to her dedication to study of the Profession.
Angela’s 20 years as an analyst at one of the nation’s most respected financial institutions have taught her critical thinking and exposed her to a variety of financial issues she can now apply to her clients’ specific tax and financial situations. Moreover, her experience at the Fed has made her into a true professional, with a passion, and a never-ending desire to learn. She enjoys researching complex tax topics, and finding innovative strategies for implementation in her clients’ tax plans.
