Christian Hakim, CFA

Vice President, Goldman Sachs, Private Wealth Management

Christian Hakim was raised in Westchester County and studied at the Villanova School of Business both as an undergraduate and graduate student, earning a Bachelors degree in both Finance and Accounting and a Masters degree in Finance.

Christian now works as a Private Wealth Advisor at Goldman Sachs in New York City. His primary responsibility is assisting Foundations, Endowments and High Net Worth families in making asset allocation and investment decisions. Prior to his time at Goldman, Christian was an analyst in the Corporate Finance group at CIT Group where he helped underwrite credit facilities in the Communications and Technology industries.

Although his meeting with Nancy Robertson was somewhat of a chance encounter, he immediately became enthralled by the idea of creating something truly innovative that helps children in need globally. His goal is to help the Grace Children’s Foundation develop the Children’s Resource Exchange as a cutting edge platform to deliver emergency and sustained resources to those in need.

In his free time Christian enjoys travel, golf and spending time with his wife, Nikki, son, Andrew and newest member of the family, daughter Natalie. Additionally, Christian volunteers with the Coalition for Debtor Education, a group that seeks to help at risk individuals with financial literacy.
