Mind the Gap

Helping women achieve their financial goals

Mind the Gap is a financial education group for all women. We all have different types of goals, lifestyles, ambitions, worries and ideas – but we have one thing in common: we want to know more about finance, wealth management and financial freedom. Our mission is to help women to achieve their financial and investment goals. Together!

2018 is the year of women.

We stand for

Closing the gender salary gap, gender investment gap and gender wealth gap

Gender equality in the German workplace is not a given: Women earn 21% less than men on average, and government figures on International Women’s Day show women are underrepresented in top jobs.

According to the new World Economics Forum report global gender pay gaps could take 217 years to close. We don’t have this time, we have to act now!

Helping women to increase financial confidence

Only 2% of wealth managers treat and service women as a distinct group with specific interests, according to analysis. We experience only 59% of the economic opportunities and participation rates that our male counterparts enjoy globally.

Sharing experience with other women

Women hold 30% of global private wealth (= 44 trillion €). We make up 43% of the global high net worth population. Research shows that companies with 30% female leadership have net revenues 15% higher than companies with only male leaders. So, why do we still feel insecure and uninformed in our financial decisions? MtG want to change it. What if we could change it together? Join us!

Helping women to understand the financial world

MtG does not use financial jargon. We explain what is what and how financial world works. We are independent.

Getting women to their financial goals

MtG understands you and your worries, needs. We see in each woman her individuality. Reach your financial freedom by: Earning more Saving more Investing more Giving more Spending less/smarter

Focusing on best practice

MtG provide you with financial analysis tools, online education programs, financial coaching and expertise and videos from experts.

Events

We are hosting a series of networking events, breakfasts, seminars and workshops. Everyone is welcome to the all the events, we love new members – and we want to help you succeed!
