Ameriprise Financial today announced that nine financial advisors were named to Barron's list of the "Top 100 Women Financial Advisors" in the country. Barron's magazine recognizes the industry's top women advisors based on several factors, which include levels of professionalism and success in the business. The rankings are based on data provided by more than 4,000 of the nation's most productive women advisors.
"It's no surprise that these highly talented advisors have earned a place on this distinguished list," said Bill Williams, Executive Vice President of the Ameriprise Franchise Group. "Their accomplishments reflect their unwavering commitment to clients. We're also proud to have the #1 ranked Top Woman Advisor at our firm. Kimberlee Orth started her career at Ameriprise and has built an incredible practice grounded in helping people achieve their financial goals. She truly represents the best of Ameriprise."
"We applaud the advisors who have earned this recognition," said Pat O'Connell, Executive Vice President of the Ameriprise Advisor Group & Ameriprise Financial Institutions Group. "They continuously raise the bar when it comes to operating highly successful practices and providing clients with exceptional service."
"These advisors have built incredible practices and we're proud of everything they've accomplished," said Deirdre McGraw, Executive Vice President of Marketing, Communications and Community Relations at Ameriprise. "They care deeply about their clients and bring the best of Ameriprise to the people they work with. We know women make great financial advisors and we're dedicated to being a place where they can have rewarding careers and make a difference in the lives of their clients."
Ameriprise is committed to being the firm of choice for women in the financial services industry. As part of its strategy to recruit, retain, develop and engage a diverse workforce, the company hosts annual Women's Advisor Summits and sponsors the Ameriprise Women's Empowerment (WE) Network.
"Financial services is a great profession for women and I'm honored to be in the company of the most successful in the industry," says Kimberlee Orth, Ameriprise Private Wealth Advisor and Barron's #1 ranked Top Women Advisor on the 2020 list. "I've been with Ameriprise my entire career and with the support of my wonderful team, we've built a business that helps people achieve their life goals by making smart and informed financial decisions. Making a positive impact on their lives while at the same time growing my practice and investing in my talented team has been incredibly fulfilling."
"It's no secret that women are underrepresented in the industry," said Audree Begay, Ameriprise Private Wealth Advisor who was featured in the Barron's Top Women Advisor article. "This trend is starting to shift as firms like Ameriprise are providing more opportunities to recruit, develop, and mentor women who have the talent and skills to succeed in the industry. On a personal level, I'm dedicated to making my practice a place where women can enter the industry and grow in their careers."
