DALLAS, Feb. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/
J. Anthony (Tony) Nelson, Chief Diversity Officer of Custodia Financial, has been recognized as one of the Top Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) Leaders by the Defined Contribution Institutional Investment Association (DCIIA). Tony will be honored alongside 24 others for their dedication and commitment to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the Defined Contribution Industry.
The DCIIA’s DEI Leaders program was created to recognize individuals creating a more inclusive financial industry that delivers better returns for all stakeholders. The awards went to leaders from across the industry, including asset management, financial advisors, and in the case of Custodia Financial, providers of innovative technology solutions that measurably protect retirement savings while workers have outstanding loans.
“The financial industry, in particular the retirement industry, has acknowledged the need to change, and I applaud DCIIA for creating an award to showcase the talented professionals making a difference,” says Tod A. Ruble, CEO of Custodia Financial. 401(k) programs are the most significant retirement and savings vehicle ever created in the US. Underrepresented minorities borrow at much higher rates and bear the brunt of layoffs during difficult economic times.” Retirement plans must do more to realize their full potential and close the wealth gap.
“I am thrilled and honored to be recognized as a DEI leader by DCIIA,” said Tony. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are essential to creating a more equitable and just financial industry. I am proud to be part of a community of leaders committed to making a positive impact”.
