Description

What is MoneyGirl?

Founded by Emma Flaherty, MoneyGirl is a Social Enterprise that was born out of the frustration felt by young working women when it comes to learning how to manage their money more effectively. Supported by UnLtd and run by female millennials, the mission is to change the way that young women think and talk about Personal Finance. Isn't it about time?

We deliver events, programmes and online content for all women under 35 regardless of background or financial capability. We're unapologetic when it comes to empowering women through Financial Literacy and we're different because we're relatable - something that we have been struggling to find across the industry. Our events aim to address the most popular topics such as Savings, Mortgages, Spending/Debt Mangement, Pensions, Investments and Mental Wellbeing.

We've got off to an awesome start already with a nomination for The Women In Finance Awards - Advocate Of The Year 2017 and a recent feature in Stylist Magazine! We've also had the opportunity to bring MoneyGirl to The London Stock Exchange, House of Commons, Investec, Rothschild and CISI.

What are we doing differently?

We're breaking the rules when it comes to traditional ways of thinking about money. And we want our members to do the same. We don't use jargon or unhelpful acronyms to put you off. Instead, we ask real women to share their experiences with money, good and bad so that we can all learn a lesson or two that we can implement into our personal lives. We're well connected across the industry and ensure our speakers are engaging and passionate about our cause.

We'll be providing light refreshments on the evening.

What did we learn from our first event?

That there's a huge demand from women just like us who want to learn more about their personal finances - we sold out so we must be doing something right! However, every day is a school day and we'd like to make our future events more focused on a particular topic so that you come away with enriched content. And more importantly the confidence and understanding to apply it to your every day lives.

So, what can you expect from this event?

You'll hear from the Founder of MoneyGirl, Emma Flaherty on her own experiences when it comes to buying a property along with some practical knowledge on the different types of mortgages, saving for your deposit, the bits that the industry doesn't tell you and negotiating on price.

As always the MoneyGirl team will be leading an honest discussion with a panel of kick-ass women from the industry, speakers to be announced very soon!

We'll be asking our industy experts where are the hottest locations to buy in right now, what to look out for when applying for a mortgage and asking them what the advantages and disadvantages are in becoming a home owner or property investor.

Are you looking to buy a house on your own? We'll also be hearing from women who did it on their own salary and what advice they would give to those starting out.

Unlike our first event where we had over 100 women attend, this event is much more intimate. We will be hosting this as more of a workshop style event with fewer members so that there's a chance to ask questions and cover more material with you.

Why do we charge for tickets to attend the events?

We're a Social Enterprise which means that we need to generate funding in order to continue maintaining the innovation and value at all of our events. More importantly, we operate on a Cross-Subsidisation model which means for every woman that pays to attend our events, we can offer one free space to our community programme for someone in less of a position to do so.

There will be an opportunity on the evening to register your interest with our community programme.

Make sure you tell your girlfriends and we look forward to seeing you there!
