This November Sharon Allen spoke at the InvestmentNews Women Adviser Summit in San Francisco, California. She shared her expertise regarding the concerns and needs of Breadwinner Women in our society. Drawing from the national research from the Family Wealth Advisor’s Council, of which Sharon is a member, she focused on the resulting data highlighting the challenges and opportunities financial advisors need to be aware of when serving these clients. “It was an honor to be asked to contribute on this very important topic,” says Allen. “Our research shows that the financial services industry needs to do a much better job in truly partnering with women.”
