If you are anything like me then you probably have a leery attitude towards the financial market and investments companies. A lot of this perception comes from the recent market crash. A little research however, will show that there are at least some business leaders out there who are actively changing their policy.
Hall Capital is perhaps one of the most unique and interesting businesses in operation today. Located in San Francisco, California, it is a profitable investment company. In fact it is one of the most succeful investment companies in the market and it’s management staff happens to be entirely women.
Helane Morrison is one of Hall Capital’s most distinguished employees and leaders. She joined the company in 2007 and now holds multiple title within the hierarchy. These titles include General Counsel, Managing Director, and Chief Compliance Officer. Before being employed by Capital Hall, Morrison was the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission in San Francisco. She worked there for a total of eight years. Before that she spent three years as the local SEC offices head of enforcement.
Her work as a compliance officer involves a proactive relationship with government regulatory agencies. Morrison claims she was drawn to the work after the market crash out of a desire to restore consumer confidence in financial institutions. Rather than trying to hide from or circumvent regulation, compliance officers act within the company to ensure all actions are up to code and in full compliance with local law.
The development of companies like Hall Capital is a trend we should all watch closely. It is women like Helane Morrison who will change the investment marketplace in the years to come, making it a more secure and profitable environment than it was before.
