Women’s Wealth Matters

Did you know that women invest differently than men? Women are more likely to invest in social enterprises. Quite a few women play a leading role in impact investing.
 
In Women’s Wealth Matters (WWM) we facilitate the conversation among women about a wide range of topics. What is your relationship with money? How do you find your purpose, how would you like to make a difference with your capital? What do you expect from your investments?

WWM is an ongoing series of events for female wealth holders only. 

Why attend WWM?

  • Join a diverse network of women: seasoned investors, entrepreneurs and nextgens
  • Gain more clarity about your purpose to invest for good
  • Walk away with new insights, ideas and connections
