With financial adviser roles being dominated by men, the company’s goal is to create more opportunity for women by creating a franchise, through which women can set up their own advisory business with full support and training, and in turn provide female clients and their family’s advice on their finances.
In September the firm ran their first training course with three new advisers, growing the team to 6. Nadine Monks from Medway is an army wife and mum of 3, with a gap of over 5 years since leaving the industry. Yasmin Jahan from Edgware is a mum of 1 with experience in business banking, who wanted to leave the corporate world to develop her career in financial services around her family. Jennie Delelis from Ashford is a mum of 1 with a background in management, who wanted to take her flare with money to the next level! They join existing adviser Sarah Drakard from North London, who left the rat race from her executive PA career of 50 hours plus a week to put her energy into her long term business with Evolution for Women.
Director, Rebecca decided to start the business in 2011 when she found herself in a position where there were little options for an experienced female broker, let alone someone new to the industry. Since then the company has grown from strength to strength with interest and support from both men and women, awards and accolades have followed suit.
