by HighTower on March 02, 2017

CHICAGO, March 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — HighTower announces that four advisors from the HighTower community appear on the Forbes list of “America’s Top Women Advisors 2017.” The list, published on February 28, recognizes 200 female financial advisors from around the country who manage a combined $210 billion. The HighTower honorees are:

  • Pamela Rosenau, The Rosenau Group at HighTower (number 7)
  • Gibson Wilkes, Wilkes Duffy Wealth Management at HighTower (number 76)
  • Ruth Berger, RJ Wealth Management at HighTower (number 121)
  • Laurie Kamhi, LCK Wealth Management at HighTower (number 139)

According to Forbes, women make up only 16% of financial advisors nationwide, even though 47% of the overall workforce is female. At HighTower, more than one third of advisor teams include a woman advisor.

“We extend deep congratulations to Pamela, Gibson, Ruth and Laurie for this recognition and for all of their accomplishments,” said HighTower CEO Elliot Weissbluth.

The Forbes ranking of America’s Top Women Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative and quantitative data, rating thousands of wealth advisors with a minimum of seven years of experience and weighing factors like revenue trends,  assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and best practices learned through telephone and in-person interviews. Portfolio performance is not included in the criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK receives a fee in exchange for rankings.
