Women To Watch on the National Front: 

Sallie Krawcheck

Founder & CEO

Ellevest

 

Sallie Krawcheck has a high profile on Wall Street, where she ran Bank of Americ's and Citigroup's wealth management divisions and was CFO of Citi.  Today, she is CEO and Founder of Ellevest, a digital investment platform for women. Ellevest’s goal is to work to close the gender investing gap in the U.S. by "redefining investing for women."  The firm is rolling out funds that invest in women, specifically in a way that helps get more money directly into the hands of women and organizations that support their advancement.  Socially responsible and impact investing is becoming more popular with investors who want to make money while trying to achieve social and economic change. "There's a greater urgency among women investors to use their growing financial clout in support of other women and to invest in the future they want," Krawcheck said in a statement.
