November 13, 2017
Organization designed to support women financial advisors, and better serve growing market of women investors, celebrates 2-year anniversary
CHICAGO, Nov. 13, 2017 – Signator Investors, Inc. celebrated the second anniversary of the launch of the Signator Women Advisors Network (SWAN) with its inaugural SWAN forum, held recently in Chicago. The network was formed to provide targeted support to Signator’s women financial advisors, and to help better serve the growing market of women investors.
“I believe it’s the consistent willingness of our advisors to share best practices, and support the growth and success of each other, that makes SWAN initiatives like the forum so successful,” said Caron Scorpio, AVP Marketing at Signator, and co-founder of SWAN. “The forum is one initiative that is part of Signator’s overall commitment to supporting the growth – and recognizing the achievements – of our current and future women advisors.”
The SWAN forum was held as part of Signator’s annual Practice Advancement Conference (PAC), and drew leading women advisors from around the country for a full slate of workshops, panel discussions, presentations and relationship-building exercises.
One who was favorably impressed with the forum was Signator Investors financial advisor Christina Nash of Knox Grove Financial, LLC: “Our team arrived ready to seek out those best practices that we felt we needed to improve upon. Our peers did not let us down,” she said. “We walked away inspired and full of ideas.”
And Alice Tang, vice president of the Signator firm BPG Wealth Management, LLC, added, “At our SWAN Forum, our candid sharing of knowledge and experience, and our interactive discussions were converted into collective wisdom that benefited our participants. I see a bright future where our Signator female advisors come to the table, not to compete with male advisors, but complement each other – so both our clients and our industry win.”
