Women’s leadership drives commerce, politics, activism and culture. But when it comes to our finances—taking full ownership of our investment choices, bringing our values to the fore of financial decision-making—we still have a ways to go. Men still make the majority of household investment decisions, and while women are largely interested in impact investing, only a small percentage are actually doing it.
The good news: impact investing is fast becoming a mainstream investment strategy, and women control increasing amounts of wealth. We believe that these two forces have the power to change capital markets for the better, but that can only happen if we all take action—if we galvanize our investable assets in service of a better world.
We want to make it easier for you to get started on your impact investing journey. What good can your dollars do while still providing the security you need? What concrete steps can you take to overcome gender barriers around money, and truly control your finances? How can you align your investments and your values in service of a better world?
At Invest for Better, we inspire women from a broad range of income levels to relate to their money in a new way.
Impact investing is still an emerging field, and the traditional, male-dominated financial advisor system is just recognizing its value. Getting started may seem overwhelming, but it merely requires DIY know-how—and that’s why we are here to help.
Invest for Better is by, for, and about women (along with our male allies!). Some of us are seasoned impact investors, and some of us are just getting started. We’re excited about the future of the field, because we know our investments, our values, and our capital have the power to create a better world. We know women are leading the impact investing revolution—and we invite you to join us.
