Worthington, Ohio (PRWEB) June 02, 2014
AI Insight, the financial industry’s most trusted source for alternative investment product information and training, has recently been certified as a majority-owned women’s business by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council.
AI Insight was founded in 2005 by Sherri Cooke to provide the financial planning community with a consistent database of alternative investment products. Cooke, a 20+year veteran of the industry, also identified a critical need for product-specific advisor training that followed a fair-and-balanced, consistent methodology addressing the features, risks, and suitability of these products. In 2007, AI Insight launched its online alternative investment database and education platform with its first broker dealer firm. Today, AI Insight serves the education, training and research needs of over 100 broker dealers and over 100 Alternative Investment product sponsor firms.
“With more companies having formal supplier diversity programs, we now have just one more reason we can answer the question ‘Why AI Insight?’" said Sherri Cooke, AI Insight’s founder and chief executive officer. “The WBENC certification is another element that supports our vision statement that ‘AI Insight is the on-line, go-to resource for Alternative Investments.’”
