Investing, and the world of finance in general, can be a daunting prospect for many women. Both those who are new to it and those who are more seasoned investors.
It is no secret that it women are underrepresented both working in the finance sector and as individual investors, with lack of confidence being cited as the main barrier to women engaging more actively with the finance industry.
This is why we set up the Female Investor Network. It is an independent initiative, with the goal of creating a space for women to talk, learn and share about finance and investing.
Lizzie is a budding investor with a background in creating learning programmes for her family business.
She is passionate about empowering women to start talking and learning about money and investing, starting the conversation and creating a network of like minded people.
