The 50

What follows is an alphabetical listing of 50 distinguished women in wealth management. It is not merely a list of who has the most assets under management or who has the highest production numbers. Some, for example, are on this list because of less-tangible contributions they've made to women in the profession, such as serving on committees or mentoring. However, they all have at least one thing in common: they are role models for the next generation of women advisors.

See the image at the end of this piece for a printable version of the list.
