Edward Jones is hosting an event to convene the firm's female financial advisors and other professional women in the Denver area to help build a robust women's network in the region, gain insights, share experiences and grow both professionally and personally.
This event is part of Edward Jones' national effort to support women through its "Network Connect" series, which features various women's networking events with relevant speakers in metro markets across the U.S. Edward Jones is dedicated to recognizing the success of their female financial advisors, and this series is designed to promote leadership, connections and success in their careers.
The event will feature speaker Kate Warne, Ph.D., CFA, Edward Jones' top investment strategist. On a daily basis, her expertise guides the market research financial advisors rely on to help clients achieve their long-term financial goals.
According to Edward Jones research, women will control 70 percent of the wealth transfer from baby boomers to their children and often choose other women to serve as their financial advisors. Kate will discuss the importance of financial literacy among women given their increasing role in the industry, practice management strategies tailored to female clientele, and how to think about long-term investing differently, especially amid economic uncertainties surrounding the 2016 Presidential Election and other global factors impacting global financial markets.
