Despite Overall Optimism, Financial Awareness Gap Still High For LGBT Investors, According To Wells Fargo Survey

Wells Fargo Advisors – Accredited Domestic Partnership Advisor (ADPA) Program

The Accredited Domestic Partnership Advisor (ADPA) program was created, through a partnership with the College for Financial Planning, to educate advisors about the unique needs and financial considerations of domestic partners. Financial advisors who earn this designation are well-equipped to work with domestic partners and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) clients to develop a thoughtful approach to meeting their financial goals. Wells Fargo Advisors created ADPA in conjunction with the College for Financial Planning. Today, Wells Fargo Advisors has more than 100 ADPA-certified financial advisors nationwide, more than any other firm in the country.

About the Study

These survey findings are based on an online survey conducted November 9 – December 3, 2012 among adults nationwide (N=1,105) and LGBT adults (N=606). Qualified respondents were non-students, ages 25-75, who are the primary or joint financial decision-maker in the household with household investable assets of at least $10,000. Survey results are weighted to reflect Census data for gender, age, race/ethnicity, region and household income to ensure representativeness. Assuming no sample bias, the maximum margin of error for the National sample is ± 2.9% and ± 4.0% for LGBT.
