New Providence, NJ (July, 2011) - Diahann W. Lassus, CFP®, CPA/PFS and President of Lassus Wherley has been named as one of the 3rd Annual 50 Top Women in Wealth by AdvisorOne the leading online destination for independent advisors, wealth managers and financial planners. The annual list recognizes the 50 most influential, powerful and inspiring women in and around wealth management.
An advisory board of noted industry leaders chose the 50 Top Women in Wealth after an extensive process, making their final choices based on the Top 50 Women’s accomplishments, thought leadership and inspiration as role models. The exceptional leaders on this list are responsible for managing and directing hundreds of billions of dollars of wealth, for educating and guiding wealth managers and their clients—both individuals and institutions—and regulating the markets and market participants.
“The accomplishments of these women put the lie to the outdated notion that women can’t succeed in all levels of wealth management and in every business model, including broker-dealers, banks, asset management firms and the RIA world,” said James J. Green, editor of AdvisorOne.com. “These 50 women are accomplished entrepreneurs, thought leaders, money managers, personal wealth managers of all kinds and partners to those wealth managers. Their accomplishments transcend their gender, while their gender helps inform their personal values to their clients and customers.”
