October 4, 2022 (New York, NY) U.S. Secretary of the Treasury announced the inaugural members of the Treasury Advisory Committee on Racial Equity. The first-of-its-kind committee will provide advice on efforts to advance racial equity in the economy and address acute disparities for communities of color.

“I’m delighted to be a part of the exciting work of this new group,” said Valerie Red-Horse Mohl, Co-Founder and Partner with Known Holdings, a new financial firm investing in BIPOC-owned companies. “Including our voices at the highest level of policy is an important step, and I look forward to a world where Black, Indigenous and people of color have full ownership of their future.”

Red-Horse Mohl launched the first Native American owned full-service investment bank on Wall Street in 1997 and since then has served as a financial advisor, asset manager and banker to over 50 tribal nations with a focus on access to optimal capital and equitable terms.
