LUNCH & LEARN – WOMEN BREAKING INTO INVESTMENT
November 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm UTC+0
Women are allegedly far less likely to invest than men, leaving a wide investment gap in the UK. To close the investment gap, we need to look at both sides of the coin; investment and investor.
Three women from across the investment landscape discuss how we increase the number of female entrepreneurs breaking into the investment space and offering new and more female-orientated products. In turn, how can we begin to increase the number of female investors across different asset classes?
In the lunch hour session, you will hear from:
- Roxana Mohammadian-Molina – Chief Strategy Officer at Blend Network, a peer-to-peer lending platform that was last year selected by the Mayor of London as one of the UK’s top-ten FinTech companies. She is responsible for the platform’s growth and strategic partnership alliances. Prior to this, Roxana has worked with some of the biggest names in the finance industry, including Morgan Stanley and Barclays.
- Sam Smith Founded finnCap in 2007, having orchestrated the management buy-out of a small broking division of JM Finn & Co Limited, a private client stockbroking firm. Sam is the first female chief executive of a City stockbroking firm and is a supporter of social enterprises designed to inspire and engage the next generation of female business leaders. Sam is the founding patron of the charity, Modern Muse, a free mentoring platform that empowers young women to make more informed career decisions and connects them to career opportunities.
- Kat Mann is Head of PR, Nutmeg and has a deep understanding of how investment products are marketed to different audiences. As an influential voice in the investment arena, Kat has been voted as one of the Times Top 100 to watch and was also listed on Innovate Finance’s Women in Fintech Powerlist in 2018. She has extensive experience working across the financial services sector, previously holding senior roles with Which? and AXA Wealth.
