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.
