For decades women have never been at the centre of their own finances
What can we say about the women in our lives? Mums, Aunties, Grandmothers, Sisters and in no particular order of importance, we couldn’t live without them. Key moments in the last few years have changed the way women are talked about, respected and appreciated. The more we appreciate the women in our lives the more we fall short of words to describe how much they mean to us. Whilst things are changing, men and women continue to expose the gender imbalance we still live with, such as data bias in a world that still feels designed by men, for men. This is systemic in financial services, from banking through to insurance and retirement planning, for decades women have never been at the centre of their own finances. Whilst small pockets of businesses are trying to change this, and the numbers of women working in a position of power in financial services is growing, decades of neglect are creating a finance epidemic of its own.
