Jessica Perrone
Founder, Her Financial IQ

Jessica Perrone is a financial services professional with over 18 years of experience working with hedge funds, Wall Street traders, high-net-worth individuals, and global institutions. In 2005, Jessica opened her first TD Ameritrade account and has been managing, trading, and growing her own investments ever since.

When she first started her journey, she had difficulty finding an environment where she could learn the basics of investing and trading stocks. During that time, many of the people she talked to were men, making trading seem complex and difficult. However, this did not stop Jessica from becoming a successful investor. She took the time to study the markets and, over time, developed a strategy for success - which she now wants to share with other women.

Through Jessica’s experiences in educating family and friends on investing and trading, she developed and honed an innovative curriculum that will empower women to learn basic and advanced techniques within a non-judgmental and safe environment, where questions are welcome and learning fun.
