She is the author of the article “Custodians Leave Investor Money on the Table” (PERSist, National Conference on Public Employee Retirement Systems, Fall 2009) detailing the many issues that may arise when pension funds rely solely on their custodians to monitor their stock portfolio. Atara is the host of Pensions and Investments Podcast where she uses her platform to educate her investment community, interviewing industry professionals, including CEO’s, Executive Directors, General Counsel and others who can help provide insights and share their experiences on all matters relating to their investment portfolio recoveries.
Atara is also a mom of 3 school age children and the author of the popular children’s book series, Curlee Girlee, inspired by her own young daughter and written for all curly girls in an effort to ensure they love their hair and all their unique features and are empowered to become the strong confident women of tomorrow!
Atara loves being a lawyer and connecting with investors from around the globe. Atara’s own father was a NYC teacher so she understands the Pension Fund World as a true insider and she approaches her work and portfolio recoveries with a true understanding that the many public fund members are people just like her dad!
