LGBTQ Q&A with Jeff Schoenfeld



The past several decades have brought monumental societal and workplace changes for the LGBTQ community. Over the course of his 32-year career at Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH), Partner Jeff Schoenfeld, an LGBTQ leader in the firm, has witnessed first-hand the remarkable change in the LGBTQ landscape globally, and at BBH specifically. Now, as both an owner and a client of the firm, Jeff helps lead BBH’s effort to build a more diverse and inclusive workplace environment, one that strives to ensure that members of the LGBTQ community have the same access as he does to culturally competent professionals and the wealth planning services they deliver.

In this Q&A, BBH Wealth Planner Brad Dillon sits down with Jeff to discuss his experiences at BBH, why seeking out LGBTQ-knowledgeable investment advisors and wealth planners may be useful for LGBTQ individuals, and some of the financial and wealth planning obstacles that remain for LGBTQ individuals.
