A 1994 St. Lawrence University graduate has been appearing in the news media frequently, for her expertise in how fears of terrorism are affecting the stock market.

Kari Bayer Pinkernell '94, a senior U.S. investment strategist with Merrill Lynch, has been quoted in recent business stories in the New York Times, Business Week and the Web site Business 2.0, and has appeared several times on CNN's financial news programs. Bayer's opinion is being sought by the media because her firm is one of only a few that factor terrorism and "geopolitical uncertainty" into its predictions.

An economics major at St. Lawrence, Pinkernell earned an MBA from New York University. She studied in Vienna while a student at St. Lawrence, and was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. As an alumna, she's been active as a fund-raising and career advising volunteer and is a past member of the University's Alumni Executive Council.
