Laila Pence – Named one of InvestmentNews’ Women to Watch

Newport Beach, CA – 11/18/2019 – InvestmentNews has recognized Laila Pence as a 2019 Women to Watch honoree. As one of the 20 prestigious winners, Laila was chosen from several hundred nominations for her leadership, contributions and impact in the financial advice industry.

“I could hardly believe someone would entrust me with so much of their hard-earned money,” she said. That $20,000 has grown to $1.5 billion* in assets under management.

Each of the advisers and executives who made the fifth annual InvestmentNews Women to Watch list were chosen from a rigorous selection process designed to identify women who possess leadership skills, the ability to effect change in the industry, a willingness to share their expertise with other women, and are committed to giving back to the community.

“Our 2019 honorees are inspirational leaders in the financial advice industry,” said Frederick Gabriel, editorial director of InvestmentNews. “Their stories show the next generation that women do have thriving careers in financial advice and at companies that support the business.”

Laila Pence will publicly receive her award at the fifth annual InvestmentNews Women to Watch Luncheon on March 12, 2020, at the Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York City.
