Duff & Phelps Corporation (NYSE: DUF), a leading independent financial advisory and investment banking firm, has formed a partnership with LPGA Tour golfer Cristie Kerr to mentor a group of LPGA rookies and raise money for Kerr’s Birdies for Breast Cancer charity. As part of the partnership, Duff & Phelps will extend its ongoing sponsorship of Kerr to include rookie LPGA golfers Kathleen Ekey, Victoria Elizabeth and Taylore Karle. In addition to bringing the four golfers together to establish “Team Duff & Phelps,” the company will make a donation to Birdies for Breast Cancer for every birdie scored by the team during 2013 tournament play.

The mentorship aspect of the program marks the first time that an established LPGA golfer and a corporate sponsor will provide formal guidance on and off the course to junior LPGA colleagues. Ekey, Elizabeth and Karle will benefit from career guidance, professional advice and collaboration on charitable endeavors such as the Birdies for Breast Cancer program throughout the course of the partnership. This announcement follows Duff & Phelps’ recent launch of its internal Network of Women (NOW), which aims to attract, develop and promote women at the firm while also supporting broader causes of interest to women. NOW offers special resources in such areas as recruitment, training, marketing, business development, networking and communications.

“Duff & Phelps established the Network of Women to encourage the personal and professional growth of women at our firm. As we expand our focus, we are very excited to join forces with Cristie and Birdies for Breast Cancer,” said Elyse Bluth, co-chair of the Duff & Phelps Network of Women and a managing director in the firm’s investment banking practice. “The partnership is a natural extension of Duff & Phelps’ commitment to its female employees and causes in which our clients, and women in general, take interest.”
