Emotional money: the last taboo

Despite living in an age of empowerment, many married women still waive their participation in longer-term financial decisions. Why? Family dynamics, societal norms, and the belief that financial companies have not historically catered to women. But UBS is changing for women, and with them.

As part of our commitment to focus on women's needs, we are proud to be a Leadership Sponsor of Tina Brown’s 2018 Women in the World Summit in New York City on April 12-14. This three-day event brings together powerful women and men from around the world and focuses on the most important issues women face.

One issue that is particularly important to UBS is women and wealth. Our research shows that while women are making significant progress in education, politics, and the workplace, there is one thing they’re not talking about: money.

UBS Global Client Strategy Officer Paula Polito will be a part of a distinguished panel to find out why.

And it's critical we do. 80% of women will be alone at the end of their lives and in charge of managing their finances.*

There is hope. Explore this enlightening UBS report which spells out steps women can follow to take a more active role in their financial futures. Paula's discussion will center on these findings as she and her distinguished panel shine a light on the important and timely issue of women and wealth.
