Gender Investment Gap: Slow Progress in the City

Female Invest, the world’s largest financial education platform targeting women, made a bold statement in the heart of London’s Square Mile. They installed an enormous hourglass at Bank Junction, symbolizing the 169 years they estimate it will take to close the so-called investment gap between men and women.

The Investment Gap

The investment gap refers to the disparity in the number of men and women who invest and the size of their asset portfolios. Recent research by Aviva reveals that 37% of women do not invest, compared to 24% of men.

Female Invest's Mission

Founded in Copenhagen by three women, Female Invest aims to empower women financially. Their crowdfunding campaign, already attracting 4,000 pre-registered investors, underscores the urgency of addressing financial gender inequality.

Financial Freedom and Independence

Money equals freedom, power, and independence. Female Invest collaborates with leading female entrepreneurs, including Deborah Meaden and Sara Davies from Dragons’ Den, as well as receiving praise from Emma Watson.

London's Gender Equality Challenge

Despite progress, the number of female CEOs in FTSE 100 companies remains low. Urgency is needed to close the gender pay gap and create a more equitable financial landscape.
