AI Insight recently announced that it has become certified as a majority-owned women’s business by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). Founded by Sherri Cooke in 2005, AI Insight provides education and insight to broker-dealers, financial advisors, and other firms about the alternative investment industry.
WBENC is the largest third-party certifier of businesses that are owned, controlled, and operated by women in the U.S. In addition it is an approved Third Party Certifier for the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contracting Program.
“With more companies having formal supplier diversity programs, we now have just one more reason we can answer the question ‘Why AI Insight?’” said Sherri Cooke, who is AI Insight’s CEO as well as founder. “The WBENC certification is another element that supports our vision statement that ‘AI Insight is the on-line, go-to resource for Alternative Investments.’”
AI Insight allows broker-dealers to better educate and train their advisers through modules and resources. The company provides a central web-based location and information database, training and education on alternative investments, and the facilitation of communication between financial advisors, broker-dealer home offices, as well as the product sponsors and their sales staff.
