Lindsey Young: Quiet Wealth - Loud Impact Fiftyfaces Focus 2024 Pride Special

    • Careers

Lindsey Young, is the founder of Quiet Wealth LLC, which she started to provide a comprehensive set of financial advisory services that successful LGBTQ+ professionals and their families need.  She previously spent 15 years in Silicon Valley finance, primarily as a investment banker working on M&A, IPOs, leveraged finance and other transactions for technology companies. She also advises a series of non-profits, and is Board President of FreeState Justice, the leading statewide LGBTQ advocacy organization in Maryland. Lindsey transitioned somewhat later in life and we talk about how she chose her timing.  It coincided with her starting her own financial planning business and she decided that it would be more sensible to time her transition for before striking out on her own.  We move then to discuss the experience of inclusion she saw – pre-transition – in the high performing world of tech and finance, and the pace she is now aiming for in her own financial advisory firm.Our fourth Pride series is supported by JPMorgan Chase. JPMorgan Chase has long been a supporter of equality in all forms, including for the LGBTQ+ community. Starting with the very first PRIDE business resource group in 1996, they recently strengthened their commitment by creating the Office of LGBTQ+ Affairs and a full-time, dedicated team to deliver on a global LGBTQ+ agenda. The Office of LGBTQ+ Affairs partners closely with stakeholders across the firm to promote intersectionality and leverage its combined resources to deliver equity and inclusion for LGBTQ+ employees, clients, partners and communities, worldwide.
