Women's Wealth Workshops

Women are increasingly becoming involved with investing for their financial future and although their objectives are often the same as men’s, their investment needs are often very different.

In general, women live longer, their careers are often interrupted to care for family concerns, and they tend to be more conservative about investing. Understanding the motivations and emotions that inform your decision-making can help you make better, more profitable investment decisions. This is why Craigs Investment Partners developed the Women’s Wealth network, to identify the different investing needs of women and provide advice, tools and share ideas specifically tailored to women.


Women’s Wealth seminars, run at different locations around New Zealand, offer an open, informal forum for women to come together and discuss a series of topics around investing. At each seminar a guest speaker will present his/her insight on the discussion topic. Register now to be kept informed of upcoming seminars in your region.
