Alger Helps Nurses Cover Student Debt

Reported by Neil Anderson, Managing Editor

The folks at a New York City-based mutual fund firm are helping healthcare workers pay down debt as they continue to battle the coronavirus pandemic.

Dan Chung, CEO and chief investment officer of Manhattan-based Alger [profile], confirms that the company and its 165 employees have donated $400,000 to cover student debt of the nurse managers at the Brooklyn Hospital Center. The idea, Chung explains, is to offer a "reward for their service, recognition for their contributions to our community."

"Nurses are the backbone of a hospital," Chung says in a video that also features interviews with some of the center's nurses. "They are extremely giving, caring, putting themselves at risk."

Chung, though now a fundster leader and PM by trade, reveals that he was a biology major in college and that his sister is a doctor. He recalls learning a few years ago that the average nurse graduates "with something like $85,000 in debt." This, he felt, is "really wrong," even more so in light of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

"I don't think there's any nurse who served ... during this time who should be under some crushing debt," Chung says. "They deserve a bonus and recognition now, all of them."

"Nurses have been on the frontline of the #coronavirus crisis since day one and they not only deserve recognition — they deserve a break," Chung adds in a LinkedIn post.
