Successful Hall Capital Headed by Notable Women

Hall Capital, founded in 1994, is lauded as one of the largest and most successful money management firms in the Bay Area. With $24 billion in assets, the company is headed up by some of the most respected women in the field. Hall says the firm offers accountability, integrity and regulatory compliance for its clients. The company is headed up by Kathryn Hall, who is also co-chief investment officer, President Sarah Stein, and managing director and general counsel and chief compliance officer, Helane Morrison. 

The San Francisco investment firm, founded in 1994, manages the bank accounts of some of the most successful families in the Bay area, including John Fisher, son of the founder of Gap. 

Stein said that female leadership is rare in financial services, but the fact that a woman is at the helm of such a great company is impressive and draws in some clients who trust the reputation and abilities and careers of the women. 

Morrison joined the firm five years ago after a legal career at the Securities and Exchange Commission and worked prior to that for a daily newspaper in South Florida. From 1996 to 1999, Ms. Morrison was head of enforcement for the San Francisco SEC office. While there she represented the SEC in business, legal, and matters of financial concern. 

Morrison practiced law for a decade at Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin from 1986 to 1996 where she was named a partner in 1991. She also served as a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmun and Hon. Richard A. Posner of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

Hall says Hall Capital’s benefit package makes it a desirable place to work. The firm includes maternity and paternity leave. The workplace is flexible and family commitments can be met with little guilt or difficulty. Hall Capital also encourages employees to be engaged in outside activities including church and community. Incentives and behaviors that reinforce the firms values are another reason Hall says the firm has enjoyed such success in the workplace. 

The $10 Bill Will Soon Have A Female Face On It

Anyone who is about female empowerment, they must have wondered to themselves why there are no female historical figures on any of the foldable money that we spend today. All the money that is foldable, it has men on it, and not one female. The New $10 Bill. Things are changing now, and the $10 bill is going to get a remake. There are plans to remake the $10 bill, and to put a female face on the cover of the bill. It’s not known yet which female will be on the cover of the $10 bill, but many people are voting on different figures.

Folks at Boraie Development know that some people have requested that Rosa Parks should be on the bill while others have stated that Harriet Tubman deserves a place on the bill. There are so many historical female figures in the past that there’s no telling which one will be used on the face of the $10 bill. Some may even feel that it’s an insult to take such a low denomination, and put a female on the cover, but think about it in another way. In the hip-hop community, a dime is known as a perfect 10, so putting a female on a $10 bill may be another way of saying that she’s a perfect 10!

The $10 bills are scheduled to be remade in the near future, but many are anxiously awaiting to hear who will grace the cover of the next set of $10 currencies that will be released.
