We started in 1997 with a dream to financially empower women; 25 years on, we’re still passionate about transforming lives through creative and intelligent financial solutions.

We’re on a mission to put more people in charge of their wealth.

Our vision is for a more abundant society where we can each can learn to make and use wealth to improve ourselves, our quality of life, and our world, and that we share this as a force of change.
