One of our guiding values at Alliance Trust Savings is that investment services like ours should be accessible to all. Yet our current customer base is predominantly male.
Why is this? Is it about men having more money than women? Or are the reasons broader than that? Do men and women see the world differently when it comes to their finances? Are their respective priorities aligned or not? What financial behaviours do they each display?
As part of our special Investing Gender Gap initiative, launched in June 2017, we’ll be surveying over 8,000 people nationwide to find the answers. The outputs of our research will be four White Papers where we’ll explore the real issues and, we hope, stimulate a positive and constructive debate.
By better understanding the investing gender gap, we can find ways to respond on a practical level – ultimately making our services more accessible for women and for men.
Our first White Paper looks at who’s in control? Who does what when it comes to making financial decisions and how they feel about it.
We’ve also taken a closer look at where people spend their money and why. These are points we’ll cover in each issue so that we can track any behaviour change.
