Danielle Howard at Wealth By Design receives the Women’s Choice Award for Financial Advisors

Aspen, Colorado – February 3, 2014 As the leading advocate for female consumers, WomenCertified®, Inc. is pleased to announce that Danielle Howard at Wealth By Design 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 Wealth By Design has to extraordinary service in addressing the financial needs of women and their families. “I am honored to receive this, and will continue to uphold the standards of service” says Danielle Howard.
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.
