Leading Women Changing the Face of London’s Wealth Management Industry

Wealth management has always been an industry focused on relationships and face to face interactions with clients; that traditional model is slowly being adjusted as technology makes managing money more efficient; the Financial Times highlighted three leading women who are helping to reshape London’s wealth management industry; Charlotte Ransom is a former Goldman Sachs partner who was concerned about giving her money to advisors after she left Goldman so she started NetWealth; “Without income I had to be more thoughtful about my own money and how it would be managed. It struck me that I didn’t want to give it to any of the wealth managers in the UK,” Ms Ransom says to the FT; Anna Sofat started Addidi Wealth Management in 2006 to cater to female clients who were not being served by traditional money managers; “Most firms just talk about creating wealth,” says Ms Sofat. “People want more than just financial returns from their managers, they want personal return.”; Helen Watson on the other hand is working to change things from within a traditional firm as CEO of Rothschild & Co’s UK wealth management business; Watson says the firm is focused on consistent and valuable relationships with clients, the fundamentals have not changed but the environment has; women have often been ignored or overlooked in wealth management with almost all products geared towards men, that is changing and leading women are helping to lead the charge.
