Aksia’s New Partnership: Supporting Schools

November 11, 2017 James Heinsman Hedge Fund News

In conjunction with a Brooklyn Middle School, the research and portfolio advisory firm Aksia has begun an initiative which seeks to impact students in a number of ways, including through the creation of development of interactive after-school programs. For the 2017-18 academic year, the school – MS 582 – will reap the benefit of Aksia’s involvement through an expansion of their chess program, resulting in greater student participation, and even professional coaching from ChessNYC.

The benefits of chess playing in schools are numerous and over the years Chess NYC has become known as a leader in chess education.  Chess NYC focuses on the sport and fun aspect of the game and provides opportunities for children from beginners to championships in its programs.

Other educational initiatives taken by Aksia include the company’s Lunch & Learn Series, whereby every week staff members as well as industry experts from the community are invited to take part in the current discussion.
