We’re proud to announce that FA Match is now a founding member of Females and Finance, an organization committed to leveraging recruitment, training, advancement, and retention for women and underrepresented individuals across the wealth management industry.

As a partner of Females and Finance, we are committed to providing recruitment-specific training and resources to their 2,000+ members. Our goal is to help break down the barriers that exist in our industry for women and underrepresented communities to thrive, by equipping them with information and tools that can address their specific needs and connect them to FA Match’s network of partners, advisors, and firms.

“I’m so proud to be a male ally to the leaders, members, and partners of Females and Finance,” says FA Match CEO and co-founder Ryan Shanks. “Simply stated, our workplaces should reflect the people we serve — and if they don’t, we’re doing ourselves and clients a disservice. I hope that through this partnership, FA Match can play a role in bringing the unique talents and perspectives of women and culturally diverse advisors to the forefront of our industry.”

FA Match was founded on the principle that advisors are the heart of our industry, and as such, deserve the support, opportunities, and guidance to help them find and live their purpose. Organizations like Females & Finance are instrumental in helping lift the entire industry into a brighter future.

Founded in 2017 by Sheryl Brown, Females and Finance is an international membership organization that offers discounted rates to other industry platforms and memberships, training resources, business coaching, financial literacy resources, community meetups, and so much more.

“FA Match has it right – career options start with relationships,” says Brown. “At Females and Finance, a relationship with Ryan Shanks and his team was the perfect match toward our company’s pillars of excellence. With our fast-growing membership base of more than 2,000 women and men, adding a career-advancing platform like FA Match supports our efforts in providing quality recruitment resources and advancement opportunities. We are excited about this partnership!”
