Ladenburg Thalmann Hosts Premier Institute Of Women & Finance Symposium

Stocks in this article: LTS

Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services Inc. (NYSE MKT: LTS) along with its independent broker dealer subsidiaries, Investacorp, Inc., Triad Advisors, Inc. and Securities America, Inc., today announced highlights of its recently-hosted Ladenburg Institute of Women & Finance symposium, held at the Conrad Hotel in Miami on November 1-2, 2012. The full symposium agenda and a photo essay are available upon request.

Commenting on the event, Richard Lampen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ladenburg, said “Given the significant growth within the independent brokerage and advisory channel over the past 10 years -- due to key demographic trends such as baby boomers retiring and more individuals taking control of their investment portfolios -- the need for independent, unbiased financial advice has never been greater. We are thrilled to have hosted the first-ever Ladenburg Institute of Women & Finance to spotlight opportunities for female advisors; as the market shifts away from the traditional wirehouse model, we believe that top quality independent broker-dealers are well positioned for sustainable growth, and we are focused on seeing more female advisors within the Ladenburg family.”

Jaime Desmond, Chief Operating Officer of Ladenburg Thalmann Asset Management and spokeswoman for the event planning committee added, “The inaugural event celebrated some of the best and brightest women in our industry. In what is still a largely male-dominated advisory space, symposium participants shared their insights on the growth of women in finance, varying demographic shifts, consumer trends, and providing a female-friendly work environment.”

Janine Wertheim, Chief Marketing Officer for Securities America, Inc. commented, “After working together with senior-level women from Investacorp, Triad Advisors, and Securities America on a thoughtful agenda for the event, we are pleased with the overwhelmingly positive feedback we have received from the attendees. Our advisors are asking for an annual in-person forum, much like this one, as well as the use of digital communications such as webinars, teleconferences, and a community discussion board in order to keep conversations and connections alive between institute meetings."
