The Why: The Gender Wealth Gap
Globally, women control 85% of consumer spending....
- However, we are paid less than men but consistently earn higher returns when we invest.
- The problem is women invest less than men. $5 trillion of these assets are unadvised, with 71% held in cash savings.
- Over a lifetime, women are losing upwards of $100 a day by not investing and are 80% more likely than men to be impoverished during retirement.
- Additionally, only 22% of women have a comprehensive wealth management plan of their own in place.
Our goal is to address the gender wealth gap by empowering women financially in creative and dynamic ways.
Introducing MasterClass Resources
Depending on what generation you are, you likely have very different financial priorities and are going through differing life transitions (widowhood vs. buying your first home). You also have lived through distinct experiences (wars or recessions) that influence your money investing decisions, and you want to handle your finances based on your age and goals.
To provide personalized content, we have organized our financial education MasterClass resources by generation. No matter what stage you are in, we want to educate you by offering tailored resources to help you gain the knowledge needed to make smart financial decisions.
"Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.
Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less."

On Organization & Prioritization
I love this planner! I take a few minutes every week to think about last week's accomplishments - as well as prioritize what I need to focus on for the upcoming week. It is well laid out, and has been great for keeping me organized both personally and professionally.
