Webinar: Promoting female wealth through venture capital

Live webinar on 12 October 2023


For advisers and their clients




Did you know that women will own most of Britain's wealth in the near future? Research from the Centre for Economic and Business revealed that 60% of UK wealth will be in women’s hands by 2025.


Research also shows interesting patterns that affects women’s appetite for investing:

  • Lack investment confidence: This is stopping women from actively managing their money and tend to favour cash (FCA Financial Lives survey)
  • Longer-term needs: Women on average outlive men, meaning their investments need to go further
  • Patient investors: Women hold funds for 10.7 years on average compared with 8.3 years for men (Boring Money)
  • ESG minded: 70% of female investors said they took sustainability into account compared with 58% of male investors (UBS Sentiment Survey)

These themes point towards an opportunity for more females to diversify away from traditional allocations and discover the merits of alternative investments like venture capital. With women investors underrepresented in this space, Albion is hosting a webinar to get participants acquainted with venture capital investing.

The webinar is designed to be an informative and thought-provoking session on opportunities to diversify female investment portfolios.
