A member of the advisor’s Investment Committee, Long has key responsibilities for all investment-related activities, with a particular focus on portfolio and risk management. She joined the firm in February 2011.

“During her 13 years in New York, Angie made some significant contributions to the investment community,” said Christopher D.
