Speaker: Barbara Stewart, CFA
May 31st, 2016 at the Biltmore Court
A CFALA Women's Group Sponsored Event
Please join Barbara Stewart, CFA and author of the Rich Thinking series of white papers on women and financial issues, as she explores the research findings from her sixth study, entitled How smart women are shaping the future of the financial industry. The report was launched globally in Stockholm on International Women’s Day – Tuesday, March 8, 2016.
Key findings from Barbara’s research on women and money are: 1) actions speak louder than words; 2) women learn through stories; 3) women invest in causes and concerns that matter to them; 4) smart women get started investing; and 5) women are risk aware, not risk averse.
The most important conclusion from Barbara’s studies is that more women = more money! Research has proven that diversity on senior management teams and boards makes companies more profitable leading to higher share prices. Inspiring women to invest will not only lead to better liquidity, but reaching out to the increasingly influential and financially powerful female audience will equal more money across all industries.
