New York, September 6, 2022 – Wealthspire Advisors, an NFP company and independent registered investment advisor, announced that Assistant Vice President and Advisor Anora Gaudiano, CFP® received recognition as one of Financial Planning‘s 2022 Rising Stars.

Financial Planning’s Rising Star awards celebrate early-career financial planners who embody the values of the profession and are on the trajectory to make a difference in the field. This year’s list of winners was selected from nominees who are either early in their career or have recently transitioned to the wealth management industry.

Anora Gaudiano’s non-traditional path to becoming a financial advisor was one of the reasons she was selected as a 2022 Rising Star. Gaudiano grew up in a working-class family in Soviet Uzbekistan. She defied Uzbek societal norms and moved to New York, where she spent nearly 20 years as a journalist before embarking on a career in financial planning. An in-depth profile of Gaudiano’s career journey can be found here.

“The financial services industry offers a greater level of meritocracy than many other sectors, and Anora is a shining example of how individuals with non-traditional backgrounds can find success in our industry when given the chance,” said Mike LaMena, CEO of Wealthspire Advisors. “We are incredibly thankful for her hard work and are proud she is receiving the recognition she deserves.”
