Popular Talks by Susannah Streeter

Unlocking the Door to Female Financial Empowerment

Money is the soundtrack to our lives. From squeezing a fistful of sweaty pennies as we navigated pick and mix treats, to the pounds earned during a Saturday job, to your first pay check and last pension contribution. Given that it’s an ever-present force pulsing through every part of our interaction with the world – you’d think that by now we’d have got the hang of it. Instead, money is a worry. It can keep us up at night. It can extinguish our hopes. It can lead to depression. Women effectively work for free for nearly two months of the year compared to the average man. Women are also losing out when it comes to investments, as they are far less likely to invest, which puts them at a financial disadvantage in the long term. Men have billions more in stocks and shares ISAs, investment accounts and pensions. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Susannah, as a senior investment and markets analyst and a campaigner for equal pay at the BBC unlocks the mysteries of the financial system. She helps build the knowledge manual to help women negotiate getting a better deal at home, work and in the world of investments.

Taking the Temperature of the Global Economy

Following a year of shocks, from the invasion of Ukraine to commodity price spirals and bond market mayhem, investors are set to remain highly sensitive to further upheaval particularly given that a third of the world is set to enter recession in 2023. Inflation is showing signs of easing and consumers are proving more resilient that expected but investors are much more highly attuned to the potential for threats to escalate.

Susannah Streeter constantly takes a temperature check on the world economy in her role as a senior investment and markets analyst. She explains the task ahead for central bank officials, still trying to rein in inflation.
