Helen Raleigh

Helen Raleigh, CFA, was born and raised in Communist China. She arrived at America in 1996 as a student. She knew no one and had less than $100 in her pocket. Like millions of immigrants with a craving for freedom, her pocket was light but her dreams were rich. Through a combination of hard work and scholarships, Helen earned her master’s degree in business economics from the State University of New York, College of Oneonta, as well as a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Wyoming.

Over the years, Helen worked for several fortune 500 companies, including Citibank. She has over 16 years’ experiences in the financial services industry in areas ranging from pension funds to risk management. She also holds the “gold standard” investment industry designation — the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charter certification.

As a dynamic and highly sought after public speaker, Helen’s speeches have captivated audiences in the US and China. She is best known for making complicated concepts simple, personable, and actionable. She frequently headlines radio shows, conferences, dinners, and events. Her experiences of living through two different social economic systems as well as her immigration journey give her a unique creditability and authenticity to speak on topics such as entrepreneurship, immigration reform, and doing business in China. She will leave the audience awed and inspired.
