Investors Capital Corporation (ICC), the wholly owned independent broker/dealer and investment advisory subsidiary of Investors Capital Holdings, Ltd. (NYSE Amex: ICH), is proud to be a co-lead sponsor of the Women Advisors Forum being held October 25, 2010 at The Colonnade Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. The event is presented by Financial Planning, On Wall Street, and Bank Investment Consultant magazines.

“Only six of our top thirty advisors are women,” said Peter Acciavatti, director of east coast branch development for Investors Capital. “We view this forum as a great opportunity to connect with successful female advisors, recruit new advisors to the firm, and further diversify our field force. The industry is evolving demographically and we need to be cognizant of that trend.”

According to the Women Advisors Forum is a unique opportunity to network with the most successful and influential women financial advisors in the nation, while gaining fascinating insight into their career experiences and rise to the top. As more women strive to the upper echelons of management, this forum provides both a networking opportunity and an educational venue for high-ranking women advisors to discuss their successes and challenges in the industry.

The website also mentions that the number of women who have migrated into the financial services advisory industry in the last two decades has risen exponentially but is still relatively small. It states that roughly 25% of all financial advisors are women; an anomaly when compared with women’s representation in other professions.
