Finance Monthly - March 2022

29 Finance Monthly. Bank i ng & F i nanc i a l Se r v i ce s Overcoming the GENDER INVESTMENT An Interview with NatWest Group GAP Findings from research firm Kantar (2018) suggest that the value of investments held by women aged between 21 and 53 is just half that of men in the same age group. “If women are less likely to invest, they could face further disadvantages in the long term,” says NatWest. “They may find it harder to be financially independent and could be more likely to face financial difficulty in old age because their pension savings are lower than men’s.” Finance Monthly speaks to Camilla Stowell, Head of Client Coverage for Coutts, part of the NatWest Group, about the reasons behind the gender investment gap, the benefits women are missing out on, and how NatWest Group is helping to close the gap.
