About the Book



"[This book] provides the foundational support women need to talk to each other about their money, invest to grow their wealth, and to take the actions required to shift their assets into alignment with their values. Written for smart, savvy, successful women who have investable funds they attained through earning, inheritance, or other forms of asset building, Activate Your Money starts where other personal finance books leave off. It delivers the depth of information women need to make informed investment decisions across their entire portfolios. Starting with checking and savings accounts and proceeding asset-class by asset-class, the central part of the book provides readers with core investment knowledge, as well as concrete examples about how and where they can invest their money in alignment with their values. A section that explains the importance of values-aligned investing and grounds readers in their current financial situation precedes these chapters. The book concludes with a segment dedicated to helping women find communities of support and guidance on empowering their daughters and granddaughters to be smart, confident values-aligned investors. This book will launch with a companion website that contains downloadable tools readers can use to take action. It will also be accompanied by a curriculum that guides women through the process of starting and running their own "Invest for Better" finance clubs. Written in three sections, Activate Your Money helps readers: Explore values-aligned investing and acquire tools through which they can understand their own money beliefs and values; Discover socially responsible investment options, asset class by asset class, and make decisions about where to put their money; Break the taboo on discussing money with partners, advisors, friends, and daughters"--
