A new wealth management network targeted towards bringing women together across the sector has joined forces with a leading national law firm, to help drive change in the professional services industry’s attitude to women and their wealth.
Irwin Mitchell was named the exclusive legal partner for wealth management network WealthiHer, founded by Cherry London, joining sponsors such as Brewin Dolphin and Investec. This comes as the network released its inaugural WealthiHer report earlier this month, which examines the diversity of women’s wealth, the way women invest, what they invest in and how they manage their wealth.
The report indicates that for women, wealth means providing security and comfort for their families.
Alison Eddy, managing partner at Irwin Mitchell’s London office, said: ‘The findings are entirely reflective of what we hear from our own clients, who come to us for our advice, and to help them implement the legal framework they need to protect both their wealth and their families.
‘As exclusive legal partner, we will help to shape the future of WealthiHer, providing valuable insight from our own expertise to create a truly inclusive network that is a collaboration of many minds.’
