Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
As the leading advocate for female consumers, WomenCertified®, Inc. is pleased to announce that Lisa Lockerman, registered principal of Cambridge Investment Research and president of Lockerman Financial Group has received the Women’s Choice Award® for Financial Advisors based on rigorous research, 17 objective criteria including a client survey to obtain feedback regarding service and practices.
The Women’s Choice Award is the only recognition program for well-qualified advisors who are committed to the women’s market and serving their female clients. Achieving this award reaffirms the commitment Lisa Lockerman has to extraordinary service in addressing the financial needs of women and their families.
“We are honored to receive this award. As a firm, we place our clients’ best interests first and strive for excellence in all we do,” said Lockerman. “Many of our clients have been with us for over 20 years, and we work diligently to maintain those lifelong partnerships. Our industry brings with it many complexities, and we work together with our clients to deliver the clarity and financial peace of mind they deserve.”
WomenCertified, originator of the Women’s Choice Award, was created by Delia Passi, the leading advocate for female consumers and former group publisher of Working Woman and Working Mother magazines. In partnership with WIFE.org (Women’s Institute for Financial Education) co-founders Ginita Wall and Candace Bahr, Delia has created the Women’s Choice Award for Financial Advisors in an effort to help women identify those advisors who are committed to providing quality service. The award allows this elite group of advisors to showcase their commitment to the women’s market, while giving potential clients a starting point for entrusting their finances to an advisor.
Women currently control 51 percent of all wealth in the United States, and according to the Federal Reserve, this number is projected to reach 66% by 2020.* As the financial industry wakes up to the fact that a great majority of the female population are seeking advisors they can trust, Passi, Bahr and Wall have already created the solution. This powerful, national initiative distinguishes advisors who support female consumers in their quest for financial education.
