Sallie Krawcheck is the cofounder and CEO of Ellevest, an innovative digital investment platform designed to help women reach their financial goals.

She is also chair of Ellevate Network; a professional networking community whose mission is to advance women in business. She is one of the highest ranked women ever to have worked on Wall Street, having held posts such as CEO of Smith Barney, CEO of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and CFO of Citigroup and was a top-ranked research analyst. In her first book, Own It, she draws on her unique experience to offer a fresh and contrarian outlook on navigating today’s business landscape, namely: Being a woman in the business world today isn’t a liability — it’s an asset. In the increasingly complex and connected world of tomorrow, she says, communication and collaboration will rule the day. By owning and investing in these qualities, women will have more power than ever. Join her for an inspiring discussion!

Sallie Krawcheck will be signing copies of her book, Own It, after the event.

Brief Bios

With a reputation for integrity, creativity, independence of thought, a sense of humor and an unrelenting focus on results, Sallie Krawcheck has built a career that has reached the top levels of success across a range of functions: as a senior corporate executive, as a research analyst and now as an entrepreneur. Recently named number 9 on Fast Company’s list of the “100 Most Creative People 2014,” she has also been referred to as one of the most successful and influential executives in financial services. From turning around and growing troubled wealth management businesses to eliminating Wall Street conflicts of interest and advocating a true client-centered business model, Fortune Magazine called her “The Last Honest Analyst” during her tenure at Sanford Bernstein. She spent years as the guardian of such brands as Smith Barney, Merrill Lynch and US Trust.

Krawcheck has often noted that “Investing in women is simply smart business” and her professional mission is to help women reach their financial and professional goals. She is the CEO and Co-Founder of Ellevest, a digital investment platform for women. She is the Chair of Ellevate Network, a many-thousand-strong global professional woman's network. And she is the Chair of the Pax Ellevate Global Women’s Index Fund, which invests in the top-rated companies for advancing women.

Krawcheck's embrace of social media as a means of including more people in her frank business conversations on women and business, regulatory reform and investor protection has garnered her more than 1,500,000 followers as a LinkedIn’s INfluencer and more than 41,000 followers on Twitter.

A Tar Heel fan through and through, Krawcheck also spends her time advising start-up companies, focusing on education-oriented philanthropy and serving on a variety of boards.

 

Karen Finerman began her career as a trader at First City Capital, a risk arbitrage fund. She later joined Donaldson, Lufkin and Jenrette where she became Lead Research Analyst for the Risk Arbitrage department.

In 1992, she co-founded New York-based hedge fund Metropolitan Capital Advisors, where she currently serves as CEO. Her first book, Finerman's Rules: Secrets I'd Only Tell My Daughters About Business and Life, was released in June 2013.

Ms. Finerman is proud to serve on the board of The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research and on the Undergraduate Executive Board at Wharton, her alma mater. She lives in New York City with her husband Lawrence Golub, and their two sets of twins: Lucy, Jack, William and Kate.
