Meet up

Get Confident with Investment Basics & Sustainable Investing

Wednesday, 21st April, Online Meetup

This meetup was organised by Rise (London Tech Ladies) in April 2021


What impact does your money and investments have on climate change❓ Can we be more socially responsible with our finances❓ How do I even begin to invest❓❗

As climate risk conversations take over the world, sustainability is a key word that has been thrown about in many different contexts, including the financial markets. 2021 has seen a rise in ethical and sustainable investing and is a trend that will continue to grow. Over the past several years and especially in 2020, sustainable funds have outperformed their conventional peers.

Why should we care? Because climate change will disproportionately affect women and their finances, and inequalities will increase. This is why we need to prepare for the future and be more financially aware and savvy, both from a personal perspective but also from an environmental standpoint too.

Before you start to panic, we have just the event for you! Join us on the 21st of April for an exciting session aimed at beginners who would like to initiate their investment journeys but are not quite sure where to start!

This event is open to anyone from any gender, background, or industry, all are welcome!

Get Confident with Investment Basics & Sustainable Investing

Independent Financial Advisor Cleona Lira will talk through:

  • Why we should invest
  • Common investor self-sabotaging behaviours
  • What are wrappers? ISA's v/s pensions
  • What are shares and bonds?
  • Sustainable Investment
  • How can we get started? What are the differences between active/passive/ethical/impact investment funds?

There will also be a Q&A section at the end to ask Cleona all your burning investment questions, followed by an optional virtual networking session to discuss our financial journeys in a safe space. This will be a session you won’t want to miss so make sure you sign up, we look forward to seeing you on the day!
