Celebrating International Women’s Day 2022 at Prominent Financial Services

Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow

International Women’s Day advocates for equality between men and women as an aspect of human rights and social justice. This day highlights the significant successes and incredible strides of women, over generations and around the world, for their scientific, political, economic, and social achievements. 

This year’s International Women’s Day theme, Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow, recognises that without gender equality today, both a sustainable future and an equal future, remain out of reach. 

In line with this year’s theme, it’s important to recognise the immense contributions of women around the world, who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response, to build a more sustainable future for all.

As one of Australia’s most influential financial advisers (4 years running now), Christine Swanson is recognised for the vital role she plays in helping women across Australia, achieve financial independence through financial education and by helping women have the confidence they need to take control of their financial future. 

As Director of Prominent Financial Services, she also highlights the importance of ethical investing to contribute to a brighter, sustainable future for those who wish to make responsible financial choices. 

What is Ethical Investing?

Ethical investments (otherwise known as environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) investments), allows individuals to invest their money into companies, organisations, and funds that work hard to transform the world in a sustainable, ethical way. This may include organisations that support renewable energy sources, push for better wages for all workers, or are recognised for their positive environmental and social impact. 

Individuals that take on sustainable investments tend to put their money into companies, organisations, and funds with the end goal of achieving measurable and positive impacts on the environment with their return on investment (ROI).

Ethical investments, not only regularly outperform the market average, but they also contribute to a brighter future for our planet and society” – Christine Swanson.

Why Women Need to Take Control of Their Finances TODAY

It is so important for women to understand their financial options, to make smart financial decisions, as statistically, women may find themselves alone at some stage and one of the biggest regrets that women with a partner have is letting their partner control all the finances.

Regardless of whether you are in a  relationship or not, gaining control of your finances will give you the best chance of having a financially secure future. – Christine Swanson.

However, it doesn’t help that women, on average, earn less than men and are more likely to take time out of the workforce to raise children and often again later in their lives to look after elderly parents.

Did you know?

3 out of 5 working women earn less than $30,000 per year compared to men.1

At Prominent Financial Services, we are passionate about supporting women to seek financial advice to help build their confidence so they can make smart financial decisions about their finances and achieve overall independence.
