For the first time, Arnerich Massena appears on the Portland Business Journal’s list of Largest Women-Owned Businesses in Oregon & SW Washington. Coming in 18th on the list (and the first investment firm on the list), Arnerich Massena is now 55% owned by women, since the company transitioned to become 100% employee-owned.
Arnerich Massena is proud of the fact that not only is the firm majority-owned by women, but that our executive and advisory teams are balanced between men and women. In an industry where women are greatly underrepresented – it’s estimated that only about 15-20% of investment advisors are women – more than 40% of our investment advisors – and 50% on our wealth management team – are female.

We’re pleased to see The Portland Business Journal highlighting women-owned businesses, and proud to be included on the list. The full list is available at The Portland Business Journal (may require a subscription to view) at https://www.bizjournals.com/portland/subscriber-only/2018/08/30/women-owned-businesses-oregon–sw.html
This is especially relevant as this week (third week of October) is National Business Women’s Week. it’s wonderful to see the celebration and recognition of the contributions of working women and employers who support them.
