Knowledge is power.

That’s what Solstice’s new Luminaries series is all about — asking the difficult questions and discovering what makes the people at the top of the financial services industry tick.

A quick introduction: I’m Jared Johnson, Solstice’s Strategy Lead for financial services. Ever since I started my journey at Solstice three years ago, it’s been my personal mission to explore how we can use digital to empower those who are underserved by the industry. That’s also my hope for this series — that picking the brains of financial luminaries will empower others.

We’ll leave no stone unturned. We’ll find out what these individuals have done to be so successful, as well as their biggest regrets. Together, we’ll expand our knowledge.

That’s why I couldn’t be more thrilled to kick it off with Katie Nixon, Executive Vice President and Chief Investment Officer at Northern Trust. Throughout her career, Katie has become one of the most respected women in the world of finance, from managing hundreds of billions of dollars to being a regular contributor on CNN, Bloomberg, and CNBC, she is the definition of a true luminary.

Here, Katie opens up about driving change in legacy banking and gives her best advice to women trying to advance in male-dominated industries.
