Top Women Advisors List Identifies 200 Leading Female Advisors out of 13,000 Nominations


AKRON, OH—March 22, 2017: Carina S. Diamond, managing director of SS&G Wealth and Springside Partners LLC, is among “America’s Top Women Advisors,” according to Forbes. The ranking was announced at the inaugural Forbes/SHOOK Top Advisor Summit in Las Vegas on March 17. Diamond was ranked 102 out of 200 advisors, one of only two advisors from Ohio to receive the recognition.

“Educating my clients on the importance of a long range view, investing in young talent on my team, and embracing a new era in financial services has made our practice sustainable,” said Diamond. “I’m honored to be recognized in a profession where I get to help people reach their goals every day.”

The importance in recognizing women financial advisors comes at a time when the field is dominated by men. Only 16% of financial advisors are women. Diamond is noteworthy not only for her success in a female-minority profession, but also for her efforts to grow the field for women.

“I look forward to watching that 16% increase as we prepare our next generation to become financial advisors. We are dedicated to educating and empowering women on financial advisor careers. The potential for women in this field is immense,” said Diamond.
