The Museum is an independent, non-profit affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. With education as its core mission, the Museum offers both permanent and timely temporary exhibitions; education programs for elementary through graduate level students; a robust calendar of special events featuring renowned speakers from across the industry; and an important collection of documents and artifacts related to the financial markets, money and banking.

“I am delighted to welcome Alvi to our Board of Trustees,” said Dr. Richard Sylla, Chairman of the Museum. “Alvi brings to the board significant experience in the industry, driving strategic initiatives at many of the world’s leading financial institutions. His expertise and insight will be invaluable to the board and Museum, as we continue our commitment to furthering financial education.”

“I am honored to join the board of such a prestigious institution,” said Mr. Abuaf. “After almost 30 years in financial services, it’s important to me to give back so that the industry can continue to flourish. We are currently in the midst of an inflection point in the industry; it’s crucial to look not only backward, but also forward to the future and imagine the future of the industry. I believe the Museum is instrumental in helping to shape that future.”
