  • $20 Trillion (27%) of the world’s total wealth is controlled by women.**
  • In the US alone, women exercise decision making control over $11.2 trillion; that is 39% of the nation’s estimated $28.6 trillion of investable assets.**

  • Women consumers make the final decision for buying 91% of home purchases, 65% of the new cars, 80% of health care choices, and 66% of computers. ***

The Women’s Choice Award Financial Advisor Program is based on 17 objective criteria associated with providing quality service to women clients such as credentials, experience and a favorable regulatory history, among other factors. Financial advisors do not pay a fee to be considered or placed on the final list of Women’s Choice Award® Financial Advisors. WomenCertified Inc., home to the Women’s Choice Award, awards businesses, brands and services based on high recommendation ratings by female consumers. The Women’s Choice Award represents the collective voice of women so they can help each other identify businesses that deserve their loyalty and referrals.
