New York, November 11, 2021 – Wealthspire Advisors, an NFP company and independent investment advisor based in New York, NY, today announced it entered into a partnership with the CFP Board Center for Financial Planning that includes sponsorship of the 2021 Virtual Diversity Summit and Career Fair.

The partnership, which also includes sponsorship of the 2021 Academic Research Colloquium (ARC), inclusion in a thought leadership paper to be released at the Diversity Summit, and participation in the RIA Leadership Network, is meant to support the Center’s mission to create a more diverse and sustainable financial planning profession.

“Without addressing the pipeline challenges within the financial planning industry, increasing the levels of diversity will remain a difficult task,” said Mike LaMena, Chief Executive Officer of Wealthspire Advisors. “By partnering with the CFP Board Center for Financial Planning and sponsoring the 2021 Virtual Diversity Summit and Career Fair, we hope to support and advance diversity and inclusion efforts in a meaningful way, both at Wealthspire and across the industry.”
