SIFMA and the SIFMA Foundation honored Donald F. Donahue, DTCC’s former President and CEO, at an October 23 dinner. Proceeds from the event go to SIFMA Foundation’s financial education programs, which benefit millions of students, teachers and schools across the country.
“Donahue is one of the most influential individuals in the area of investment clearing and depository services,” according to SIFMA. “He has earned recognition for innovative leadership in automating, centralizing, standardizing and streamlining processes that are critical to the safety and soundness of the capital markets.”
Since 1977, the SIFMA Foundation has enabled 14 million students and their teachers to learn about the importance of investing, saving and long-term planning, as well as the role of the global capital markets in their lives.@
