Women's Choice Award 2019

The Women’s Choice Award is the premier recognition award for advisors who provide quality service to their female clients.

The Women’s Choice Award® Financial Advisor Program is the only recognition program that acknowledges well-qualified advisors who are committed to the women’s market and effectively serve women clients.

Women’s Choice Award® Financial Advisors and Firms represent less than 1% of financial advisors in the U.S. As of February 2016, of the 783 considered for the Women’s Choice Award, 122 were named Women’s Choice Award Financial Advisors/Firms.

Advisors who qualify for the Award must go through an extensive evaluation process using 17 objective criteria including credentials, experience and a favorable regulatory history, among other factors. In addition, and to augment the evaluation process, the advisor is required to submit letters of validation, substantiating their good standing at their current firm.

Today women hold more than half the wealth in the United States and own 40% of America’s privately held businesses, and there’s more to come. Baby boomers stand to inherit $10 trillion in the next few years, and women will get the bulk of it as they outlive their fathers, brothers and husbands. The women’s market is strong and getting stronger, as the greatest wealth the world has ever seen settles into the hands of baby boom women. Yet this affluent market is underserved: Only 20% of women investors have a financial advisor, but 70%would like to work with one.

The Women’s Choice Award for Financial Advisors and Firms was created by Women Certified Inc. in an effort to identify advisors that women can trust.
