As a vice president at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, Rachel Cohen has made high-net-worth female business owners, professionals and executives a priority. “Women often approach their financial affairs with a lack of confidence,” says Cohen. “I want to help them feel secure and educated.”

Especially when times get tough. “Many women face these needs when they’re going through a divorce,” says Cohen. “So, if they remarry, they’ll be in a more powerful position in their financial lives.”

Cohen serves on the board of the Forum of Executive Women in Philadelphia, and she recognizes the importance of a support system. “By women partnering with each other and educating each other in all areas, we all will succeed,” she says.
