Knowledge Is Power

Women In the Black

As a professional with 10 years experience in banking and finance, I have met many astute businesswomen who have shown women can be good financial managers.

I have seen the every day women ignore the basic principle of insuring their income and the wealthy women who do not know what to do when suddenly confronted with an unforeseen financial crisis.

I also know stay at home mums who manage a household budget with intricate spreadsheets that would make most chief financial officers envious.

Money affects women from all walks of life. Interestingly women earn less than men, have longer life expectancies and have less money to look forward to in retirement.

I believe that all women need financial education and once armed with the knowledge, all women are capable of making sound decisions that will improve their financial wellbeing.

I founded Women In The Black to empower women to gain financial independence to have control over their financial lives and to increase their choices.

I urge you to take the first step in a lifetime of learning. Knowledge is power and financial knowledge is security.
