What I do
Hi, I’m Annaline Dinkelmann.
Twelve years ago I left my Wall Street job and became a day trader. In January 2008, I turned my passion for the stock market and business into a successful walking tour business of Wall Street.
People love getting a tour guide who has a background in the finance industry. Why? Because I can successfully translate and navigate the world of finance for the layman.... breaking it down for students, their parents and teachers.
Due to Covid-19 people may not / cannot travel to New York. Other people do not want the hassle of organizing a trip to New York.
I have turned all my in-person classes, workshops and tours into virtual products.
I invite you to join me live for my virtual Camps and Classes.
(Don’t worry, should you wish in the future, you can still visit New York and take my tour in-person.)
How I got here
My Wall Street Walks in-person tours take people through the heart of the New York financial district. People learn about the stock market works, what the role is of all the related financial institutions and how they all come together.
Many school groups have taken my tour. Teachers return yearly to bring their newest class. The kids see the stock market is real. It’s not just a building in a game.
I have spoken at many New Jersey Educational Association (NJEA), Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) conferences, as well as hosted many educational workshops. I was also featured by CNN International in 2015.
Why I do it
Many people cannot afford to travel to New York. Other people do not want the hassle of organizing a trip to New York.
