This International Women's Day sees the launch of a new financial advisory in the UAE, just for women.
her.finance is designed to empower women with the knowledge and know-how to make informed decisions and achieve their financial ambitions. Wealth Manager Linda Heath says the portal will help to counter a massive underrepresentation in the industry. "Many female clients feel this industry is dominated by males. They often feel uncomfortable talking to men about their finances, especially if Wealth Management isn't a subject they are familiar with."
Reshaping the futureWith the gender pay gap expected to exist for at least another 70 years, women the world over are having to continue the fight for equality.
Ms Heath believes the only way to change the future of finance is to empower women with more information and choices. "Single ladies need to be in control of their financial future. And so do married women. I have dealt with ladies that have expressed a preference to have their children's education planning in their name, so they can continue to look after their child's best interests should their marital status change. This portal enables women to seek information confidentially and in the company women advisors."
