FAIRFIELD, IA – October 9, 2018 – Cambridge congratulates independent financial advisor Divam Mehta of Mehta Financial Group for being honored as a Rising Star by InvestmentNews magazine in their inaugural Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion Awards. Mehta was recognized during the awards luncheon which was held at the Edison Ballroom in New York City on October 9, 2018.

The InvestmentNews Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion Awards program identifies and celebrates individuals, advisory firms, industry partners, and institutions for their work around diversity and inclusion initiatives. This year, 14 individuals and 12 firms were carefully chosen from hundreds of nominations received by InvestmentNews. Honorees are nominated for one of five categories: See It, Be It Role Models; Rising Stars; Lifetime Achievement; Diversity Champions; and Outstanding Practices. 

Divam Mehta, president of Mehta Financial Group in Richmond, Virginia, is being recognized as a recipient of the Rising Star award. This honor is presented to financial advisors or industry professionals who serve as role models for their efforts to bring diversity and to create an inclusive culture in the financial advice industry. Rising Stars have fewer than 10 years of experience in the industry, but show promise to be a leader in diversity and inclusivity. Mehta is being recognized for his efforts to recruit, educate, and empower financial advisors of varying backgrounds to learn about different nationalities and societies.
