Abstract

“Where are all the woman CFPs going?” asked an audience member at the 2017 Invest In Women conference on Wednesday.

Speaking at a panel discussion called “Does Your Firm Need a Women’s Initiative?” covering a wide range of gender-oriented topics, Michelle Lynch, vice president and director of the Raymond James Network for Women Advisors, pointed out that the demographics of college CFP programs have been evenly split 50-50 between men and women for many years, yet the proportion of women advisors in the industry still frustratingly hovers near 20 percent.
