From the outset, investing can seem intricate and complex. However, with the right explanation and guidance anybody can learn how to invest and manage their money. Investment professionals use terminology which, while native tongue to them, is often unrecognisable to those not in the investment community. At Rathbones, we believe in education to enhance your understanding of the wealth management environment, and we think it is particularly important to ensure that women are just as equipped as men to fulfil their financial goals through the power of investing. Once you understand your money, you are better equipped to make informed decisions.

Who should attend?

The course is suitable for women who want to gain a better understanding of how investments work, from the most basic cash deposit to more complex investment instruments. 56% of married women leave investment decisions to their husbands. At Rathbones, we aim to help close the knowledge gap between men and women when it comes to investing.
