At the heart of her message is the idea that there are many structural issues impacting women and money, but that resources like Vestpod help people to make the most of their finances and become financially secure and independent.

Popular Talks by Emilie Bellet

Gender equality in finance / money

On average, women’s pensions are £100,000 less than men’s due to gender pay gap and childcare commitments. We also have a £15 billion gender investment gap in the UK. I strongly believe that we can change these stats. I want to help women to strive to be more financially independent, to live their lives on their terms, while feeling secure and confident about their present and future.
In this talk, I will talk about the gender pay and wealth gaps, non linear careers, difference in financial goals for men/women, why women make great investors but also stereotypes and discrimination when it comes to money, how to make the money conversation more inclusive.

Financial health is central to overall well being

Almost 8 in 10 UK employees take their money worries to work, affecting their performance (Money & Pensions Service). Research by Neyber estimates that money worries cost the UK economy £120bn and 17.5 million lost hours of work. Most employers now recognise a link between financial wellbeing and productivity, with nine out of ten saying that financial concerns impact upon staff performance.
Employers have a key role to play. Financial empowerment is important to help employees feel secure and manage their money effectively and improve their financial wellbeing. This includes understanding products and services available to them in the workforce.
