Ranking: Top IBDs for Women

These independent broker-dealers have the highest percentages of female representatives. What are they doing differently?

“We have quite a few programs to help develop women into a career path,” says Nicole Spinelli, director of Raymond James’ Network for Women Advisors.

Transamerica also boasts a women’s network, with an annual nationwide conference, smaller forums and mentorship programs.

And that's not just good for women advisors. “It’s wonderful to have planners who are representative of the community they serve,” says Transamerica President Seth Miller.

Spinelli concurs: “Our company is better because we have more diversity as a whole.”
