Securing the Financial Future of Women: 6 Moments That Matter

Thu 4 Jul 2019


How to secure the financial future of the next generation: the 12 Perils and Pitfalls and 6 Moments that Matter in the lives of British women

Jane Portas, a co-founder of Insuring Women's Futures and a Partner at PwC, will share the highlights of her ground-breaking research into the financial lives of women in the UK. Jane's talk will cover the trends in British people's risks in life and how this impacts our financial resilience, identifying the key risks (Perils and Pitfalls) facing women and the cumulative effect of these on women's and all of our long term financial security. The session will reflect on changes in our working and family lives, and our health and wellbeing, and consider society's financial preparedness. Jane will introduce, and we will discuss, 6 Moments that Matter where positive interventions may be made to improve women's and all of our financial resilience, by women and men in society, employers, business, financial services, policymakers and the third sector.

This session is relevant for every man and woman who is interested in their and our society's financial future, those with an interest in the gender pay and pensions gaps, and wider socioeconomic matters such as financial inclusion, regulation and related policy developments.
