We are back! We are hosting a special Vestpod event on Wednesday, October 2nd at one of our favourite places: Huckletree West in White City.

What to expect? A kick-ass panel of women discussing “Getting on the property ladder and renting better”, followed by a Q&A and then drinks.

Should I buy or should I rent? We can’t answer this for you but we will discuss both options and find you the best renting tips and buying strategies. We’ll talk landlord practices, saving for a deposit, negotiating a mortgage and more.

This discussion will be a positive discussion about women and money; we will talk about:
  • Can we solve the British housing crisis?
  • What are my rights as a renter? What are the most common issues with renting and how to build a good relationship with your landlord?
  • Renting vs. buying: the pros and cons
  • How to get on the property ladder?
  • How to ask for a mortgage and actually get it? What are the housing schemes available?
  • How to stay sane during the process?
  • What is the real cost of buying a home? How to prepare financially?
...and much more.

No question is stupid or taboo so expect an empowering debate and prepare your questions for our pannellists. This event is for all levels and genders. We’ll kill the jargon and make it relevant for all. We are not financial advisers and this is purely an educational session!

Looking forward to it!

I am the founder and CEO of Vestpod. Formerly working in private equity, I launched Vestpod to change the conversation about money and empower women financially. I started my career at Lehman Brothers where I worked as an analyst in private equity merchant banking. Reflecting on my years working in finance, I realized I was not saving or investing enough and could not find the support to do so. I then decided to launch Vestpod for women - as a way to provide education and a community for women to start breaking the taboo around money. Vestpod is a digital platform with a popular weekly newsletter as well as personal finance workshops and networking events. You can find Vestpod at:
About my first book: You'Re Not Broke, You'Re Pre-Rich. Never go out the week before payday? Have less than £1,000 saved? Does this sound all too familiar? If so, it's time to take back control of your bank balance. One out of three millennials today will never be able to buy their own house. Does it have to be like this? You're Not Broke You're Pre-Rich will tell you that it really doesn't; you can have your avocado on toast and stop renting and start saving too.
This essential handbook will help debunk the financial jargon and break the money taboo. Packed with actionable tips and no-nonsense practical advice, You're Not Broke You're Pre-Rich will teach you how to make your savings work for you, how you could invest your money, why you need to understand your pension and why your financial health is just as important as your mental and physical health.
