You can make a million excuses for why something didn't go well, but ultimately, just fix it and get on with it. Be a solutions person.” -- Emily Weiss, Glossier.

Good morning,

Women aged 65 have an average pension wealth of £35,800, which is just one fifth of men's of the same age. Read the shocking new report by The Chartered Insurance Institute’s (CII) ‘Insuring Women’s Futures’ task force. We are on a mission to reverse this!

Keep your eyes open next week: Philip Hammond will present his budget to Parliament for the next financial year (April 2019-April 2020) on Monday 29th. According to the Financial Times, “he knows that a Brexit that sees the UK leaving the single market and customs union will damage the economy. But he is almost powerless to influence the biggest economic decision in a generation.”

This is what happened last week: 1/ we had breakfast with Helena Morrissey and it was amazing (photos here)! Really nice to see so many of you there and thank you for your feedback!

And 2/ We attended a Boring Money breakfast on ethical investing: Fad or the future. What about you, are you interested in this stuff?

Have a good day!
