“A lot of people say they want to see more diversity and inclusion at industry events, but they don’t know what to do about it,” said Joshua Brown, CEO of Ritholtz Wealth Management and co-creator of the Future Proof Festival. “Onyx Advisor Network and Advisor Circle have found a concrete solution that can really make a difference.”
Future Proof, the world’s largest wealth festival, taking place September 11-14, 2022 in Huntington Beach, CA, will host the Onyx Advisor Network’s first in-person community gathering, providing access, resources and a platform to underrepresented finance professionals to grow alongside other like-minded people and industry influencers. Onix co-founders Emlen Miles-Mattingly, Founder and CEO of Next Generation Wealth, and Dasarte Railway, Founder of Berknell Financial Group, has partnered with Advisor Circle as a first step towards raising awareness of the lack of diversity and inclusiveness in wealth management and to implement immediate change in the industry.
“The financial services industry has always signaled to diverse and marginalized people that this is not the place for you,” said Miles Mattingly. “Advisor Circle supports our vision to change the face of wealth and transform our industry to better reflect the demographics of our country. Our goal in launching the #RiseTogether campaign is to lower the barrier to entry for diverse finance professionals with an opportunity to collaborate and grow, while learning from established industry leaders.
The #RiseTogether campaign will run from tuesday february 1st, until Thursday, March 31st, alongside Black History Month and Women’s History Month. During this time, any attendee who registers for the 2022 Future Proof Festival will have the opportunity to gift an underrepresented industry colleague (financial advisor or institutional investor) a complimentary ticket to the event on their behalf.
“Onyx provides a welcoming place for finance professionals of all backgrounds, racial backgrounds, sexual orientations and backgrounds to look across the room and see that their community is represented,” said Railway. “Advisor Circle hosts some of the best and most innovative events in the industry. After launching in October 2021, we knew the Future Proof Festival would be the best platform to bring our Onyx community together for the first time. Our partnership will be a transformational step towards our goal of creating and strengthening equity in the wealth management industry. »
Every paying Future Proof 2022 attendee who offers a pass to an underrepresented colleague will be entered into a raffle to win a free 3-night stay at the Hyatt Huntington Beach for the duration of the event.
“Future Proof is not just an event, it is a platform designed to support the creation of a new wealth management industry that is more exciting, diverse, inclusive, technology-driven and forward-thinking. . If our goal is to disrupt and challenge the status quo of today’s wealth management conferences, diversity must be more than just a panel discussion, it must be a central theme to the experience of the event,” said Matt Middleton, CEO of Advisor Circle. “We are thrilled to partner with and support Dasarte and Emlen, what they are building at Onyx and what they stand for in breaking down the walls for underrepresented financial advisors to grow in the profession. We couldn’t be prouder to have them on board.
