In this week’s episode, we take on the big topic of how we can work together to make leadership, businesses, and investments more environmentally sustainable and socially responsible. We face many challenges – but we believe in the power of collaborative action, and that women represent great hope in driving a more responsible approach to business and investing. 89% of women, as compared 79% of men, want to engage with businesses and investments that are both environmentally and socially responsible – including gender balanced leadership and positive supply chains which protect women and girls. Joining Tamara is Claire Blackwell, Marketing Director of St. James’s Place, and Sian Sutherland, co-founder of A Plastic Planet, to discuss how we as individuals and the finance industry can use our investments to encourage more responsibility and sustainability.
For women (59%), the resounding role of wealth is being able to provide comfort and security for themselves and their family. But many women neglect to plan and invest sufficiently to provide for their retirement; currently women lose nearly £1million over the course of their lives through a lack of investing.
COVID-19 has dramatically impacted financial security, changed the ways in which we work, and the way we think about life, the future, and retirement. As the age of retirement keeps rising and we find ourselves in uncertain times, we should all be thinking about how we want to spend our lives and be armed with the knowledge needed to make the right financial choices to fuel the future we want.
In this episode, Tamara Gillan is joined by Wealth Director of Brewin Dolphin, Carla Morris, to share her knowledge and expertise on pensions and female prosperity – both now, and in the future.
