The event

Topic: Want to be part of the rise of women’s wealth?


The financial power of women is growing. However, confidence and self-esteem can be stumbling blocks when it comes to finances, according to research. Financial advice and a long-term financial plan can help boost self-assurance when making decisions about savings, pensions, and insurance. Becca and Sandra will be discussing how women can become more actively involved in their family finances, some tips on what to consider when putting a financial plan together, step by step guide on where to start, and the foundation of all plans- financial protection.

Topic: What to do if you are a woman over 40 and don’t have enough saved for retirement.


Let’s simplify how to plan for when you want to stop working and start enjoying having more free time. Consider the implications of the gender pension gap; Do you have a plan for your retirement? What do you want to be doing at that time in your life? How much will it cost? Do you have enough in your pension pot? Let us help you plan to bridge the gap.
