So, I assume this is what winning an Oscar feels like. It’s now official: we are so happy and proud to announce that Vestpod has been shortlisted in the [illustrious!] Women in Finance Awards as Disruptor of the year alongside other awesome, successful and kickass women!

This gives us a super boost to pursue our mission of educating all women on everything money-related. A big THANK YOU to the Vestpod team: Melissa our writer and Sarah our top ambassador but also to YOU our amazing community. Please continue to spread the love: think about forwarding this letter to a friend or a colleague you want to make more money - this is (also) how we grow!

The Disruptor category celebrates the companies that have reinvigorated gender diversity in the financial services industry by providing new and innovative ways to improve the gender balance in the sector across levels.

WORKSHOPS: New workshop dates. Hurry! They usually sell out quite quickly. And because you are part of the tribe, here is a £10 discount code for you: IAMANINVESTOR. I hope this tenner will go straight into your investment account!
