René Nourse has been named one of the Most Influential Wealth Managers in Los Angeles by the Los Angeles Business Journal. This list of 41 Los Angeles-based wealth management professionals highlights trailblazers that each bring a unique approach to investing and financial planning, in order to help families achieve financial stability and comfort for generations to come.

After 25 years as a financial advisor with large NYSE brokerage firms, René Nourse, CFP®, left Morgan Stanley in June of 2012 to launch Urban Wealth Management Group. Sensing that a shift was taking place in the financial services industry, where individuals had a greater interest in financial planning and advice vs. investment management services alone, she wanted to create a firm that focused on both. The primary focus and theme is to help individuals “Get Their Financial Life in Gear.” Also, recognizing that women face unique and complex financial challenges, she formed the Smart Women ~ Savvy Money Club to provide a supportive, secure environment where members are encouraged to explore ways to get savvier with their money. The mission of the Smart Women’s Club is to ensure that every woman make better financial decisions, so they can create the lifestyle they desire and deserve. With an all-woman team in place, her firm has been successful in creating that environment and delivering on that mission.

Congratulations, René and Urban Wealth Management!
