Women 2.0 profiles women angel investors in our weekly "This Is What An Angel Investor Looks Like" series.
By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)
A recovering i-banker, Angela Raitzin is now an angel investor in New York. She is a Managing Director of Golden Seeds in New York, and a Managing Principal at Morton Capital.
Still deeply rooted in the finance industry, Angela is interested in the demographic effect baby boomers will have (and are already having) on the financial industry.
"It’s an issue for individuals as well as for society. I think we’re going to see a shift as more baby boomers reach retirement. And there’s also a sense that 75 is the new 65 for investors – a sense that many will work longer to achieve the goals that may have slipped in the past decade," she revealed in an interview with The Glass Hammer.
