While great strides towards gender equality have been made over the years, crucial issues remain. In the world of personal finance, concerns include "the gender wage gap" and that many women looking to invest are underserved by the male-dominated financial services sector. According to the World Economic Forum, it will take women 200 years to achieve pay equality, while a global study by BCG last year found that a third of the world’s wealth, or 32 per cent, is controlled by women – and every year, they add 5 trillion dollars to the global wealth pool. So why is there a disconnect between the financial services industry and women and their money? Host Felicity Glover is joined by Jessica Robinson, a strategic adviser on green finance and sustainable investing, who founded Moxie Future – a platform that aims to empower women as sustainable investors and financial feminists.
