Adviser’s Consultant: What it Takes to Retain Women Advisers

Balentine’s Head of Relationship Management and 2014 FT Top 100 Female Adviser winner Brittain Prigge recently spoke with Liz Skinner at InvestmentNews on what it takes to attract and retain top female talent in the wealth management industry. In the article “Adviser’s Consultant: What it takes to retain women advisers,” Brittain shares specific tips advisers can take and apply in their own practice, including having female representation at the Management level, encouraging mentoring and sponsorship among women in the firm, offering flexibility and embracing technologies that can allow for remote working.

This topic is something about which Balentine is very passionate. Balentine CEO Robert Balentine spoke at the Barron’s Top Independent Advisors summit on this same topic in the Spring of 2015, and Brittain chairs an annual women’s forum for all Balentine’s female employees to talk about the unique challenges women face in the investment industry. The industry has a long way to go, as the article reports that less than 1/4 of the nation’s certified financial planners are women. However, we believe that implementing some of these strategies will pave the way for more female advisers in the future.
