The Signator Women Advisors Network (SWAN) is a powerful community of financial professionals that recognizes the positive impact women advisors make in the financial services industry. SWAN advisors get the conversation going around client success stories, new practice management ideas, and investment topics for women. It’s where we raise awareness and educate others on how to elevate all women and their finances. Collaboration and inspiration are essential to empowering each other, and the SWAN community is where you'll find a passionate group of Leaders Inspiring Success.

International Women’s Day
The theme this year challenges us to press forward and progress gender parity by motivating friends, colleagues and our communities to think, act, and be gender inclusive.
At Signator, we posed the question, What does gender equality look like to you?
There are significant opportunities for women entering or already working in the financial services industry. Most women have joint or full responsibility for making family financial decisions. Over the coming years, a substantial amount of wealth is expected to transfer to women yet many do not have a wealth transfer strategy in place. Financial advisors have an extraordinary opportunity to help women take control of their finances and investments and preserve family wealth. Additionally, it is projected that over the next three decades the "great wealth transfer" of $30 trillion in assets will be passed down from the baby boomer generation to their heirs1. This shift further emphasizes the need for female financial advisors who can understand and empathize with a younger generation of investors, allowing for a more personalized and customized approach to their finances.
