Black History Month: 5 Influencers in the Fintech and Banking Industry
African American business icons to admire and honor every day.
We honor those who have paved the way for the African American community and whose achievements have made a significant impact on society.
To celebrate Black History Month, we are recognizing five African American influencers (it was hard to pick just five) who have built a path for their successors and whose contributions have become instrumental in shaping the future of business, finance, and fintech. Let’s celebrate them, thank them, and acknowledge their hard work.
#4 Dasarte Yarnway, Founder and Managing Director at Berknell Financial Group
At the young age of 24, Dasarte founded Berknell Financial Group, an independent RIA firm where he continues to serve as managing director. His passion for investment banking and his continuous desire to empower his clients through financial education had led him to become a best-selling author and staple in the financial industry. You can purchase Dasarte’s books on financial education here.
According to Wealth Stack, “He has a passion for investment management, innovative financial planning and has dedicated his career to working with clients to design their wealth. Berknell’s client-centered approach is captured in its motto: Advice with You in Mind.” And that’s why we wrote this series with YOU in mind, Dasarte.
