Woman Who Fled Nazis for Wall Street Invited to Ring NYSE Bell

Irene Bergman, the 99-year-old Wall Street financial adviser profiled by Bloomberg last month, has been invited to ring the bell at the New York Stock Exchange for her 100th birthday.

Bergman, born Aug. 2, 1915, would become one of the oldest people to open or close the trading day in the exchange’s 198-year history, according to Sara Rich, an NYSE spokeswoman. Bergman’s birthday falls on a Sunday this year and an exact date for the ceremony hasn’t been set.
