Elana Margulies Snyderman

Going from a master’s program in journalism at Columbia University straight into institutional investment might seem like an unexpected turn, but for Elana Margulies Snyderman, it makes perfect sense—and it set the stage for a career that seamlessly combines deep financial acumen with journalistic integrity and curiosity. Her first role at Institutional Investor taught her the ins and outs of the alternative investment industry, which piqued her interest in emerging trends in the financial world, all while building a robust network via events and conferences. Later at Hedge Fund Manager Week magazine, she emerged as a thought leader, and further honed her skills as a panel moderator while also developing a particular interest in alternative investments.


In November 2014, Elana joined EisnerAmper, a large accounting firm providing audits, consulting, and business advisory. As senior manager, she heads their thought leadership globally, sourcing, creating, and overseeing production of the firm’s newsletters and blogs as well as moderating alternative investment industry conference panels. She coordinates with colleagues and industry leaders to create articles covering everything from financial services to alternative investment trends that resonate across the industry. Her weekly blog, Trends Watch, interviews with alternative investment professionals. “It gives me the opportunity to showcase their talents, as well as some really unique investment philosophies,” Elana says. During the pandemic, Elana expanded her media presence by launching two podcasts, Engaging Alternatives and Private Equity Dealbook, and her experience has also allowed her to help others with their own podcast strategies.


Elana loves learning about the myriad perspectives of those in the field, particularly those who have been underrepresented, and sharing them with the world. She’s passionate about diversity, equity, and inclusion, and is especially excited to work with companies dedicated to upholding these values. When she’s not interviewing the thinkers and creators of the financial world and crafting thought-provoking articles, Elana volunteers her time giving back to the community as co-founder of Phyt Cares, a tax-exempt nonprofit which educates youth and communities via fitness in New York City and Puerto Rico.
