"Alvi brings to the board significant experience in the industry, driving strategic initiatives at many of the world's leading financial institutions. His expertise and insight will be invaluable to the board and Museum, as we continue our commitment to furthering financial education."

"I am honored to join the board of such a prestigious institution," said Mr. Abuaf. "After almost 30 years in financial services, it's important to me to give back so that the industry can continue to flourish. We are currently in the midst of an inflection point in the industry; it's crucial to look not only backward, but also forward to the future and imagine the future of the industry. I believe the Museum is instrumental in helping to shape that future."
