Voices Dare to volunteer: Boosting African-American participation in the industry

It was too rare of an occurrence.

The American College of Financial Services’ Conference of African-American Financial Professionals, for the first time on Aug. 7, hosted three African-American presidents of financial services associations on the stage together.

African-Americans are woefully underrepresented in financial services, but we returned from the conference energized and reinvigorated.

Why?

Because what we saw and learned there can help financial advisors and the industry at large.

The event brought together in Washington, D.C. a record 630 financial professionals from all over the country as well as the three of us: Frank Paré, President of the Financial Planning Association (FPA); Angela Ribuffo, President, Women in Insurance and Financial Services (WIFS) and Elvin Turner, President-Elect of the Society of Financial Professionals (The Society of FSP). Through the seminars, breaks and lunches we became convinced that the key is engagement.

The Finance 202: This new crop of Democratic candidates is targeting Wall Street

Porter’s race against Walters — a onetime stockbroker and stalwart defender of President Trump — presents voters with a stark ideological choice. Yet Porter is hardly alone among Democratic newcomers this year advocating for stricter policing of the financial services industry. 

Their policy prescriptions run the gamut — from Amy McGrath, a former fighter pilot calling for tougher oversight of payday lenders in her bid against Rep. Andy Barr (R-Ky.); to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who backed a financial transaction tax in her upset primary victory over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.). But they share a theme: A decade after the financial meltdown, Washington policymakers are focused on how far to go rolling back post-crisis restrictions on the industry at the heart of it. This crop of candidates wants to shove the debate in the other direction, finding new ways to curb what they call ongoing excesses. 

New polling — released exclusively to the Finance 202 — suggests there is popular support for cracking down on financial interests. Two-thirds of registered voters are more likely to support a candidate who campaigns on regulating big banks as part of a broader economic program
