A Women's Agenda survey in partnership with Stockspot

We know that women face considerably more roadblocks than men when it comes to financial security, thanks to the gender pay gap, retirement savings gap, caring responsibilities and being overrepresented in the part time work force.

Research also tells us that women are less likely than men to invest in the stock market. In this survey, we’re aiming to find out more on the roadblocks that might be getting in the way of investing, thanks to the excellent support of Stockspot.

Please note your answers are confidential and will not be identified with your name.

Women’s Agenda will publish the findings in partnership with Stockspot later this year.
