AAAIM Celebrates the Trailblazers and the Underdogs During AANHPI Heritage Month

As we conclude AANHPI Heritage Month, AAAIM reflects on the significant contributions our community has made to the field of finance and investment management. Our community has made outsized impacts in areas ranging from the number of patents to Nobel Prizes and various innovations. Although the AAPI community represents just over 6% of the US population, we hold more than 13% of STEM jobs and are responsible for 19% of high-impact patents, according to recent Goldman Sachs Research. Since 1980, members of our community have won one in ten Nobel Prizes in physics and chemistry. AAPIs are overrepresented in the fastest growing and economically vital industries in America.
