Celebrating Nutmeg’s female investors on International Women’s Day


Hello, I’m Neil Alexander, Nutmeg CEO. On behalf of the whole company, I want to take a moment on International Women’s Day to thank our female customers for their valuable contribution to our journey so far. But we also want to start a discussion about how we can help more women achieve their investment goals. Nutmeg as a business has worked hard to appeal to female investors as much as male investors, to break down the stuffy ideas of what investing is, and who it’s for. And still only 36% of our customers are female. When you consider that only 1 in 10 women have a stocks and shares ISA, our ratio isn’t so bad. But 36% is a long way from an even split. Our industry can’t be bound by its past. From male-centric financial advice, to female representation in fund management, there are still many areas badly in need of attention. At Nutmeg, we recognise the challenges that female investors face, and we’re committed to maintaining an open and transparent service for everyone. So if you’ve got any questions or suggestions for us, please do get in touch. We would love to talk more.

  1. I don’t care, or want to know, what the gender, sex or bedroom habits of my fund manager is. I just want the best person in place to do the job.
