In 2014, Courtney Richardson was underwhelmed with the options for quality financial educational resources for African American women. So, she created The Ivy Investor, a blog to breakdown Wall Street in simple terms.

With 15 years in financial services, Courtney has a wide range of experience in retirement, consumer banking, high net-worth advising, and tax planning. Courtney holds a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree (J.D.) from West Virginia University’s College of Law and an LL.M. (Taxation) from Temple University’s Beasley School of Law. She has provided financial and legal commentary for AOL, The Huffington Post, Wealth Noir, My Fab Finance, and more. Courtney provides webinars, and masterclasses on how to create wealth through investing, how to retain wealth using appropriate tax strategies, and how to transfer wealth efficiently to the next generation (generational wealth).
