Women account for only about 20% of our nation’s financial advisors. Regulation, technology and changing customer demand help explain why. For one, the modern financial advice business is only a few decades old. Until the 1990s, regulation dating to the Depression considered advice incidental to securities transactions.
Stephanie Gromek was honored in Crain’s Inaugural “Notable Women in Financial Advice”. Crain’s New York Business is a trusted voice of the New York business community. The profiles in this inaugural report, “Notable Women in Financial Advice”, were drawn from submitted nomination materials and Crain’s research; no individual or firm paid to be featured. Their list is not comprehensive, and they look forward to seeing more exceptional nominees for this honor in the years ahead. Advisor honorees were selected based on several factors including the level of assets under management, inclusion in reputable advisor rankings and professional certifications and accomplishments. For others, criteria included the potential influence of the honoree’s work on the delivery and quality of financial advice and/or the extent of its innovation.
*Please Note: Limitations. Neither rankings and/or recognitions by unaffiliated rating services, publications, media, or other organizations, should be construed by a client or prospective client as a guarantee that he/she will experience a certain level of results if BBR is engaged, or continues to be engaged, to provide investment advisory services. Rankings published by magazines, and others, generally base their selections exclusively on information prepared and/or submitted by the recognized adviser. Rankings are generally limited to participating advisers (see participation criteria/methodology). Unless expressly indicated to the contrary, BBR did not pay a fee to be included on any such ranking. No ranking or recognition should be construed as a current or past endorsement of BBR by any of its clients.
