Financial Career

With the completion of her law degree, Aber didn’t pursue work as an attorney, but was instead hired by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, at the time still known as the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. (NASD).

FINRA is a self-regulatory company that regulates, enforces and oversees the policies of the New York Stock Exchange, the second major regulatory organization next to the government’s Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Following her work there, she moved to NASDAQ in 2000, the technical arm of the stock exchange based in New York City, ranking only second in terms of most traded stocks to the NYSE. Her first position in the company was as the Associate Director of Global Sales and Member Services, but then within a year rose through the ranks and eventually became the Chief of Staff to the NASDAQ Vice Chairman.

This also opened more opportunities for her, and she was later promoted to Vice President of the NASDAQ MarketSite.

Television and Broadcasting

While working for NASDAQ, her connections and knowledge in the financial markets led her to television opportunities, and she became the producer and host of the show “Wall Street Week”, an investment program  aired on PBS up to the mid-2000s, when it transferred to the Fox Business Network.

While working on that show, she also used television as an opportunity to cover her interest in theatrical productions, becoming a producer and host for the Broadway Channel which covered events on Broadway as well as the prestigious Tony Awards. She also did freelance work, presenting for AOL, MSN, and for the show “Brain Fuel TV”.

After leaving NASDAQ, Aber continued her work on television, and became a regular contributor to “The Better Show”, a lifestyle and celebrity talk show which is distributed by the Meredith Corporation.

The show airs through several television networks in the US. She also worked for HLN, and hosted the daily news program called “Michaela”. Eventually, she was hired by Cable News Network or CNN which is one of the most recognized all-news channels in the US. She became a business correspondent for the show “CNN’s Newsource”, and later for “Money Matters”.

Personal Life

Maribel is married to Robert E. Aber – the two met while working in NASDAQ.

He was previously the Senior Vice President and General Counsel to the stock exchange. He’s since moved to the company Yippi where he serves as the Executive Vice President of Corporation Operations. The couple doesn’t have any children together. They currently reside in New York City.

Outside of work, she is very passionate about the financial world, and follows the careers of numerous millionaires and billionaires. She also remains connected to the NASDAQ despite no longer working there.
