We are a community for sharing insights, building financial confidence and empowering women
Improving your financial confidence
Only two out of five women say they are confident making financial decisions, despite evidence showing that when women are deciding on investments, they often spend more time researching and finding information than men. That is why we have committed to increasing the financial confidence of one million women. Using our free financial confidence tool, you can check your current confidence level and find out ways to build your confidence so that you can move closer to reaching your aspirations and goals.

Demystifying sustainable investing
The majority of women want to invest in organizations that promote social well-being and we want to support them. We expect that sustainable investing will become a crucial way in which women will be able to achieve a greater social impact, with female investors set to invest USD 2.3 trillion* in improving social good by 2021. That is why our goal to help one million women increase their financial confidence will also create one million opportunities for a better world.
88% of women want to invest in organizations that promote social wellbeing.
Support gender equality
We are committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 5 (SDG) to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. Unfortunately, this goal only received 2.6 percent of donations between 2000 and 2013 according to AidData. So one way we can support this change is through gender-lens wealth: mobilizing private wealth toward gender equality goals.
How does it work? People invest to grow their money in companies that treat and represent their female staff equally. Organizations that support women and girls. And female-led businesses with diverse teams. There's also evidence that companies operating in this way are well placed to succeed. What if you could help empower women when you invest?
Gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a precondition for meeting the challenge of reducing poverty, promoting sustainable development and building good governance.
The price and value of investments and income derived from them can go down as well as up. You may not get back the amount originally invested.
