Investing in financial markets is one of the primary ways of building wealth, but women have traditionally shied away from buying stocks. Not only is there a gender pay gap, but a gender investment gap that ultimately leads to a gender pensions gap.
More than 50% of women in the UK have never invested. And yet studies show that female investors tend to perform well — they just need the confidence to start.
Many of my women friends have expressed an interest an investing but didn’t know how or where to begin. I’m sure they’re not the only ones.
That’s where this guide comes in. In 40 pages it gives you the information and tools you need to start your investing journey.
Invest like a girlboss include:
- Choosing an account
- Investment strategies: value investing, dividend investing, growth investing
- Asset allocation
- Sector diversification
- Screening stocks
- Order types
- Deciding when to buy and sell
- Data tools
There is a list of more than 30 different investment account providers detailing the asset classes they offer for trading and their account fees.
Links to a selection of data tools will help you get started in creating a watchlist and tracking your stocks.
Screenshots from a real-life account show you how to place a trade – to demystify the process.
While this guide is primarily aimed at women based in the UK, I hope beginner investors everywhere find the information useful!
