Women have made great strides in education where they earn more than half of all undergraduate and graduate degrees. Similarly in corporate America, having more women in leadership has been shown to improve the bottom line. Despite these gains, the investment world is still persistently dominated by men – just 9% of portfolio managers are women.

But did you know that women tend to earn higher investment returns than their male counterparts? This has been demonstrated among single and married women, of varying ages, over time and in different countries.

We’ll discuss the reasons why women outperform (hint: it’s not because they’re smarter!) and what investment strategies women and men can incorporate.

Along the way, Kara will share stories about her own career and how she became Chief Investment Officer at one of the fastest growing retail asset managers in the industry.

Light refreshments and Drinks will be served.

WorkSocial is conveniently located outside Newport Path station and one block from the Newport Light Rail Station. For those who are driving. Parking garage is located right across from 111 Town Square. For any questions, please feel free to email Manisha Sachdev at
