Championing investing and financial well-being for women.

Important information - the value of investments can go down as well as up so you may get back less than you invest. This information is not a personal recommendation for any particular investment.

Empowering women to achieve financial independence

As part of our Women and Money initiative we have made a short video looking at some of the financial challenges faced by women. Based on our second Global Women and Money* study which surveyed women from around the world, the film shows the importance of empowering women to achieve financial independence.

Financially empowering women

For the past few years, we’ve been working hard to understand, share and address the many challenges women face when moving from saving to investing. And much in the same way we’re committed to achieving a greater gender balance across our business, we want to help close the gap between women and men when it comes to investing. It’s one of the reasons we've created this dedicated space. 


Why is investing for women important?

We’re told that investing helps women feel in control of their finances, reduces worry or anxiety and supports them in meeting their financial goals. That’s got to be a good thing.

And yet inequalities in investing still exist. That’s why we're doing everything we can to build a better and more inclusive financial world which will help you move towards financial security. We want to:

  • Empower you with the guidance and tools you need to invest with confidence.
  • Help you understand the impact Covid has had on your finances and what you can do about it.
  • Support you in planning for your retirement - no matter how close or far away that might seem.

Looking for inspiration?

We want to help close the financial inequalities gap that exists between men and women. Financial independence is critical to that. We asked four Fidelity women to share their stories and best investment ideas to give you the confidence to take greater control of your own financial future.
