Advisor turnover is one of the biggest challenges facing the financial services industry today. New research by the American College Center for Women in Financial Services uncovers how advisors define “success” beyond AUM, offering insights to help curtail turnover. Our Center for Women surveyed over 800 advisors on their definitions of success, what they feel powers that success, and what resources they need to succeed. The research identifies significant gender differences in several areas. See our insights now in this in-depth guide.
Women working in financial services face unique challenges - challenges easier to overcome with support from other women. Welcome to a safe space built exclusively by women for women working in wealth.
We invite you to get to know your “neighbors” and develop meaningful connections with other women across the industry. Our online community is a private forum inaccessible by the public and protected behind a firewall, so you can feel free to come as you are. Ask questions, share experiences, and impart your wisdom - together, we can inspire, mentor, uncover solutions, and identify opportunities for gender parity in financial services.
