Synopsis

As we face global challenges like climate change and inequality, what if women could use their investments to build a cleaner, fairer and more sustainable world?



Financial feminism - the belief in the financial equality of women - has been gathering momentum, largely in the context of the gender pay gap: on average a woman earns 80% of what a man does. But there's another gap - the gender investing gap - which shows women are investing less than men, saving less for retirement and parking more in cash. When compounded by the gender pay gap, this results in a significant shortfall, but there's more to financial feminism than simply addressing these gaps: women also care about where their money is invested and the impact it can have.



In this practical and accessible guide, sustainable investing expert Jessica Robinson shows how through financial feminism, women can use their financial power to invest in a sustainable future and build the kind of world they want to live in. With jargon-free explanations and real-world examples, she demystifies the financial services industry, breaks down just what sustainable investing is and demonstrates the societal and environmental impact of the investment decisions we make.



Arming women with the information they need to get started - and keep going - she hopes that more women will embrace financial feminism, invest to grow their own wealth and, in doing so, use their financial decisions to demand a better world.

Jessica Robinson has spent most of her career in the financial services industry, originally as a management consultant and now working as a strategic advisor to governments, institutional investors, think tanks and companies on all things relating to green finance and sustainable investing. Increasingly frustrated by the lack of progress in this space, coupled with the glaring inability of the investment industry to talk directly to women, she set up Moxie Future - an education, content and community platform for women who want to learn more about responsible and sustainable investing. She lives in Dubai. @Jess_Robinson1

Customer Reviews

My partner purchased this book as a softback as she was interested in a sustainable way to invest. As the COVID-19 pandemic has led to record low interest rates then we both started to look away from standard banking and towards other areas that may offer higher returns. One of her goals was to try and invest in a responsible and sustainable way and to avoid managed hedge funds that may be fiscally viable, but morally dubious. I was slightly sceptical about reading the book as I thought it would be firmly seated in the ‘feminist camp’ but this is not the case at all, and it is applicable to the male investor as well as the female. There is obviously a feminist skew which details the drive towards parity between the sexes, but nothing that would preclude the male investor from benefitting from reading this. The tone and readability of the book is excellent with a lot of business and finance jargon either abandoned or explained in a manner that can be understood by someone, like myself, that is relatively unfamiliar with such terms. Overall, it is a very interesting take on the subject and I want to reinforce that it is more extensive and comprehensive than the title may initially lead you to believe.

Really insightful book. Am starting my learning into sustainable investing and this book is a really useful place to start. To begin with, it explains what sustainable investing actually is, and also discusses the gender investing gap (financial inequality), it also explains all the industry jargon and buzz-words. Next up is a deep dive into how we can get started with investing sustainably, whether you're a complete beginner, or a seasoned investor (how you can clean up your portfolio). All throughout the book, Jessica highlights the WHYs - WHY we should be investing sustainably, WHY we should care where our money goes, WHY the cumulative impact is going to change the world! I'll definitely be coming back to this book again and again for all the actionable tips. Disclaimer: I do know the author of the book
