Description

You're invited to our 2018 International Women's Day Special Event - Introduction to Investing!

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.

Talking about money can be tricky, so we promise to ensure every event has a sweet ending. We'll be providing drinks, delicious canapes, goodie bags and opportunities for networking.

What can you expect from the event?

The MoneyGirl team are super excited for this event as it'll be even bigger and better than before. We've had a huge amount of interest for this topic - it's the more glamorous side of finance but still as confusing! So, we are teaming up with WealthSimple; an online investment management service focused on making "investing easier for millennials". They will be showing you step by step how to make your first investment and answering all of your questions, demystifying the world of investing.

As always, we will be leading an honest discussion with our Panel Speakers in our interactive Q&A!

We are also very excited to invite VestPod to join us - they are a weekly Newsletter run by Emilie Bellet, an ex-Private Equity Consultant. I personally recommend signing up to VestPod as it's leading the charge in weekly inbox love when it comes to making finance easier to understand. They also have an awesome Instagram account!

Speakers include:

  • Annabel Watson – Portfolio Manager at Cazenove Capital

  • Sam Seaton – CEO at MoneyHub

  • Jennie Byun - Co-Founder at Isabella Forum

  • Linda Roberts – Director at The Share Centre

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 ("Buy one, give one") 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.

Be sure to get your Early Bird tickets now at a discounted rate, tell your girlfriends and we look forward to seeing you there!
