Right now, women control around 40% of Britain’s wealth. By 2025, that figure is set to increase to 60%.
There are more women in the workplace, more women starting and leading businesses, and more women taking on the role of the main breadwinner in their household than ever before.
And while female founders, entrepreneurs and professionals experience the same challenges as their male counterparts, they also have the added likelihood – and pressure – of family caring responsibilities. Commitments that sap time and, sadly, can even tarnish how they’re viewed as leaders.
Why, then, is the wealth management profession traditionally skewed towards approaching and communicating with men, without fully appreciating or understanding the specific needs of women?
One thing’s clear: it’s time to flip the script. It’s time to level the playing field. And it’s time for the financial planning community to show females that we’re listening, and we’re ready to help you shape the lifestyle you want.
At Cooper Parry Wealth, we launched the Women of Wealth (WoW) movement and put together this guide to be part of that change, laying out key considerations, investment principles and planning opportunities in an engaging, relevant, female-centric way.
Take a look, and if it sparks any thoughts, questions or otherwise, how about an informal chat?
