The New York Institute of Finance (NYIF) Announces Global Partnership With Rock Orient Foundation and the American Education Center Inc.

The New York Institute of Finance, Inc. (NYIF) announced today its partnership with Rock Orient Foundation ("Rock Foundation") and American Education Center Inc. ("AEC") to collaborate on offering NYIF professional certification programs focused on skill building and career development in the financial services industry. The three organizations have also agreed to introduce NYIF certification courses to non-finance major college students and early-stage professionals around the world and provide basic financial education to underprivileged communities to empower employability and entrepreneurship.

Rock Orient Foundation is a foundation led and chaired by Steven C. Rockefeller Jr., a fifth-generation member of the Rockefeller family. The foundation seeks to provide solutions to challenges and problems as well as support the evolvement of public health and promotion of global education and cultural communication, and the development of human society.

Incorporated in 2014, American Education Center, Inc. delivers customized advisory services for educational institutions and corporations, and international students studying in the U.S. and U.S. students studying globally. AEC recently expanded its service to the vocational training sector including helping clients' employees acquire knowledge and skills in areas like green finance, blockchain, and fintech to support young professionals' career development. 

"As 2022 is the 100th year of NYIF's founding, we are extremely pleased to expand our client coverage and resources to provide world-class financial training to a much wider audience through our partnership with Rock Orient Foundation and American Education Center," said NYIF's Chief Executive Officer Lee Tian. "Since 1922, NYIF has been committed to offering world-leading 'Wall Street knowledge' taught by practitioners and experts in finance. We have teams and offices in several key nations and together with our digital learning platform, can serve students and professionals worldwide. Our partnership also provides us an opportunity to work with a U.S. not-for-profit organization led by a well-respected business leader in the finance industry to provide financial education for underprivileged communities, women entrepreneurs as well as the younger generation. The partnership among NYIF, Rock Orient, and AEC truly exemplify this vision."

"We are excited to embark on this new partnership with NYIF, one of New York City's oldest and most reputable institutions for financial training,'' said Rock Orient Foundation Chairman Steven C. Rockefeller Jr. "This initiative is helping us to gain more educational and professional development resources to keep with our mission to promote education. Teaming up with NYIF will allow us to connect more world-class professional resources to working professionals and students in developing countries." 

"By working with NYIF, American Education Center will continue its mission of supporting international students in their professional pursuits. Today's technology will grant students and professionals access to world-class training resources," said AEC Chief Executive Officer Christian Rockefeller. "Together, we will provide leadership in global education and employment empowerment."

The Rock Orient Foundation and AEC have signed an agreement with NYIF respectively, which lays out a long-term strategic partnership in professional training and certifications, academic content development, marketing, international recruiting, and course delivery. Starting this fall, NYIF will develop programs in partnership with the Rock Orient Foundation to provide financial and business skill training to schools in underprivileged communities as well as women entrepreneurs; NYIF and AEC will jointly provide executive training for overseas corporations that have an interest in investing U.S. 

The agreement between AEC and NYIF also includes helping NYIF establish a regional financial training institute in the Asia-Pacific area to bring Wall Street know-how to the professional communities in fast-growing economies in Asia-Pacific.
