Less than 0.1% of CFP assholes are trans, yet the CFP board felt the need to report on this demographic. Why even bother.

The best part is it doesn't even add up. Comes to 100.1%. Who runs this organization anyway.

They said less than, so in other words, like 2 people in the whole country.  

Those two are swimming in great clients, but there is work left to do Wink

It’s been awhile since I looked at this, but the last time I looked, it was something like 1-2% of our society that belongs to the LBGQT community (I don’t see how this is a coherent community but whatevs).  The amount of marketing dollars spent on it seems insane.  I think it’s just a fad, as far a marketing.  A feel good thing, because ultimately money speaks.

I think just LBG has held steady at around 6% (if you include closeted). If you add the rest, it might push it to 7%. To put that into perspective, the veteran population is about 8% (if you adjust for the 2018 Census) - not much different. Probably a fad as well.

Non-binary doesn’t mean you are trans I think (I don’t really know). My daughter has a friend who is NB, likes women. They are basically a lesbian. Isn’t trying to be a man. Doesn’t want an operation.

That's OK, newbieRIA told me you are only into the feminine looking trannies. Just be you, WP. I'm not offended.

It’s not just the 7-8% of the population that falls into this group.  It’s also their group of supporters.  The % of the population who are straight as an arrow, but are at this very moment looking for some supportive meme to post on FB/Instagram/Snapchat or whatever other social media page they use in honor of pride month.  

It has become a cultural phenomenon.  And if you aren’t for them, you must be against them.  

Here’s my question with all of this - does it matter?  With the CFP specifically, does it matter what your sexual orientation is when you go sit for the exam? It’s obvious the CFP is simply trying to placate the dozen people in the country who would actually care about that stat, but it is pride month, so why not?  

It’s not there yet, but I’m curious if we will ever get to the point that we start tracking and setting goals for hiring purposes within that group. 

Jones has been introducing more and more LGBT messaging in with their inclusion conversations.  It wouldn’t surprise me if our dear leaders try to set an example for corporate America and start including this version of diversity in with the rest of it.

It matters for representation purposes. Some folks may not realize a career path is open to them if they don't see themselves represented.

If you are white (and straight) it's easy to see that being a financial advisor is a clear path for you. If you aren't, it's less obvious.

Think about sports. Setting aside the improbability of being a professional basketball player, if you are white it doesn't give you much hope you would be able to be in the NBA, as proportionally the number of white players is pretty small when looking at the larger population. 

As for the exam, there are some cultural or financial barriers.

Let's take black advisors for example. The vast majority of black "advisors" are insurance agents only. Most researchers explain this by noting that blacks are a decade or two behind whites. Names are one aspect of this. In 10 years, you will see more black women named "Aubrey" or "Madison" than previously, while white families have moved on.

Same in the financial profession. The shift is just starting for blacks as they move into more of a full financial planning role. Thus, there will be fewer blacks getting the CFP because a lot of black advisors are insurance agents and don't see the point.

There is something similar to other demographics as well.

This is a pretty weak analogy.  Professional sports are driven by physical traits, which just so happen to be more prevalent among black people.  Take for instance your NBA reference.  I knew a Mexican kid who was being recruited by the major college programs as a freshman in high school.  Why?  Because he was playing in one of those summer leagues for gifted youth and was projected by doctors to top out close to 7 feet tall.

Mo already did a great job of explaining representation. I'll take this from a slightly different angle and note that same-sex couples have different planning needs than traditional, straight couples. Lot of dual income, no kids type couples who have a greater need for estate planning and help with the nuances around partnership. It isn't my niche, but there certainly is a niche there. I'm a happily married (to a woman), white guy, but I'd happily have a book of gays. I've enjoyed working with gay couples more than the couples who only want to talk politics and how Biden is fucking up the world.

Ummm... the mean height for black men and white men is the same. If heights are normally distributed among both populations, wouldn't that mean there should be more white men in the NBA by your standard?

In fact, the most recent study had black men having a mean height lower than white men from ages 18-44. That's prime basketball playing age.

A tranny advisor is getting two types of clients: Other trannies or people that want a tranny advisor for the sake of making a difference or being woke.

With that said... Those are probably not my clients anyway. 

I think it's cool for wealth management to be more inclusive. If it gets more people to the table building wealth, it's a good thing, imo.

Really? I'm guessing all of those kids with highly religious parents who are great parents and just don't think being gay is natural are likely to not come out.

Familial ties are still strong for a lot of people. A lot of gay people end up with weaker familial relationships because they have to separate themselves from their parents in order to be who they are (or at least they think they do).

I think I have about 50/50 dem/rep book of business. I'd say only about 5 of all of my clients would stay if I said I was trans.
