Carl Joseph-Black
Founder of RaisingBenjamin.com
Carl Joseph-Black is a Law Student at the City University of New York School of Law and the Founder of RaisingBenjamin.com, a website dedicated to increasing the wealth of young black millennials by sharing insights on Capital Markets and Wealth Management that's as easy to learn as a Drake verse. After obtaining his Bachelor's degree in Finance from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in 2011 he began his career at JPMorgan where he spent 4 years working in Risk Research and Legal & Compliance. Through his work he found the need for financial literacy and empowerment among minority communities. This inspired him to create #RaisingBenjamin. He’s a life-long Brooklynite who currently works as a Senior Associate at SEB Group in the Merchant Banking & Securities Division. During his spare time he likes to sip Kombucha while reading the Wall Street Journal, and advises local businesses on strategy. If he isn't doing those things he's probably watering his plants or listening to Drake somewhere.
