Baron Financial Group, a Women-Friendly Firm

Liz Skinner of InvestmentNews interviews Laura Mattia of Baron Financial Group, in the July 26, 2013 article “Women-friendly, with the seal to prove it”.  Laura discusses why Baron was chosen to receive the Women’s Choice Award for Financial Advisors, and how the firm helps educate women. The award is based on rigorous research and evaluation applying 17 objective criteria, and at the time of publication, only seven firms and advisers (only 11% of those evaluated) had qualified to receive this premier recognition.

” ‘The stamp says these people do the right thing for women,’ said Laura Mattia, a principal with Baron Financial Group LLC, which has been given the award. ”It helps them know we’ll answer every little question they ask.”

Ms. Mattia said her firm didn’t plan to make women the focus of their practice, but it found that women responded well to its focus on educating clients and hand-holding through the financial planning process.  Today, Baron Financial helps many single women, divorcees and widows – many of whom have never handled their own finances.  It also produces a monthly podcast, “Financially Empowering Women,” which attracts between 800 and 1,000 listeners.”
