"The pleasure derived from working with women is that they appreciate honesty, they appreciate someone putting them 1st and allowing them to pursue their dreams of family, leisure, and giving!"
PORTLAND, OR, January 14, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- WomenCertified Inc., home of the Women's Choice Award identifies Financial Advisors and Firms based on rigorous research focused on 17 points of objective criteria, in addition to references of validation from the advisor's peers and/or superiors. As such, it is an honor to announce that Wayne von Borstel has earned the Women's Choice Award, demonstrating a strong commitment to providing exemplary services for female clientele.
The Women's Choice Award is the only recognition program, identifying well-qualified advisors and firms who understand and appreciate the importance of women's financial power in today's economy by providing the necessary services and experiences to assist her through the life stages. Achieving this award reaffirms the commitment Wayne von Borstel has to extraordinary service in addressing the financial needs of women and their families.
We believe that helping support women on their road to financial security is truly a win-win for all. In fact, while people know that women control more money than men, and that women are also the financial decision makers of the household, according to a Bank of America study, women are investing 40% less than men. A study by FINRA Investor Education Foundation and GWU found that only 34% of women feel confident in making investment decisions. This leaves a lot of opportunity for advisors to work with women clients.
Wayne stated, "The pleasure derived from working with women is that they appreciate honesty, they appreciate someone putting them 1st, and allowing them to pursue their dreams of family, leisure, and giving!"
Delia Passi, founder of the Women's Choice Award says, "Women value financial security and yet they struggle with whom they can trust with their finances. Our goal is to simplify her life, and with the Women's Choice Award, women and couples have a starting point they can trust. We also take pride in helping advisors and firms who have gone above and beyond to provide a superior experience to their female clientele. We applaud these advisors and the efforts they put forth to provide women with the service and financial education that they deserve."
As the leading advocate for female consumers and former group publisher of Working Woman and Working Mother magazines, Passi created the Women's Choice Award for Financial Advisors in an effort to help women identify those advisors who are committed to providing quality service. The award allows this outstanding group of advisors to showcase their commitment to the women's market, while giving potential clients a starting point for entrusting their finances to an advisor.
