Busting female investment myths
An online lunch and learn with Sam Secomb, founder of Women’s Wealth
While the gender pay and pension gaps are slowly narrowing, the gender investment gap remains stubbornly persistent.
There’s no shortage of reports that say women invest less than men. Just 16% of financial advisors are women, meaning there’s a dearth of advice tailored to a demographic that sorely needs it.
This isn’t just detrimental to women. With 60% of UK wealth predicted to be in female hands by 2025, the economy will be dragging a lot of dormant capital unless financial planning is democratised.
Sam Secomb founded Women’s Wealth to make unbiased financial advice relevant and accessible to women. Women’s Wealth harnesses technology to support a personal, relationships-based service. As well as promoting financial wellbeing, Women’s Wealth wants to make financial planning an attractive and rewarding career choice for women.
Join us for 50 minutes as Sam leads a conversation on making financial planning a friendlier, more inclusive space.
There will be plenty of time to ask questions or comment during the session.
