FP50 2016: Which IBDS have the most woman advisers?

The percentage of female representatives in the industry has been stuck at around one-third for the past three years.

But some top firms have made dramatic progress upping their game, while others have gone in the opposite direction.

Triad Advisors, which took the top spot this year, was not even on the list in 2015 or 2014. Last year’s No. 1, Transamerica Financial, dropped off the ranking altogether. See which independent broker-dealers are hiring the most women, and how they compare to the competition.
