About us

Changing the face of wealth

Our objective is to better serve women, increase their financial confidence and contribute to the advancement of UN Sustainable Development Goal 5 – achieve gender equality and empower women and girls.

What do we want to achieve?

Together with you, we want to:

Transform our business to create an industry leading experience for female clients

Build greater financial confidence among 1 million women and provide know-how

Evolve our offering to include more sustainability, diversity and long-term investment opportunities, enabling more clients like you to facilitate capital towards Sustainable Development Goal Number 5

Provide access to a collaborative community of like-minded people and inspire dialogue around gender equality and female empowerment

Drive advocacy in the financial services industry so that we all transform to serve women better

Why do we need change?

Our research has found that the financial industry is currently underserving women and, as a result, many women lack confidence making decisions about their wealth. That is why we created the change program to better serve our female clients.

Making a difference

We’re already well on our way to achieving our goals, from collaborating with female clients and partners to create change.

These changes are already making a difference resulting in increases in our female client satisfaction rates and external recognitions like awards and gender equality indexes:


women say they are financially confident


men say they are financially confident
