So Money - Episode 349

Sallie Krawcheck

Co-Founder and CEO of Ellevest

I’m honored to have a very special guest on the show today. This is someone I wanted to have on the show from before I was even live with So Money. I always had a running wish list of guests, and she was at the top. Now, she is here – Sallie Krawcheck.

Do you know Sallie Krawcheck? If you don’t know Sallie Krawcheck, you need to know Sallie Krawcheck. Maybe if you don’t work in the world of finance, you don’t follow business news regularly, you may not have come across her name, but she is a force in this industry. Right now, she is the CEO and co-founder of Ellevest. Ellevest is a soon-to-be launched digital investment platform for women. To me, Sallie has always been the ultimate pioneer for closing the gender wage gap and women’s rights in the work place.

With Ellevest, what she’s really trying to do is close the investment wage gap. Sallie is on a very public and professional mission right now to help women reach their financial and professional goals. She’s also the chair of Ellevate Network, a global professional women’s network with thousands of members and growing. I’m actually a member. Sallie serves as the chair of the PAX Elevate Global Woman’s Index Fund which she recently launched and invest in the top rated companies for advancing women. Now, before becoming an entrepreneur, she was the CEO of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and Smith Barney. So, she knows a thing or two.

We want to talk about the gender wage gap and how women invest differently. We also discuss her own financial failures because she’s had some. She is very generous with going down memory lane and giving us those stories to help us avoid the same mistakes. Ellevest is also a really exciting venture. She has a website for us that she mentions during the conversation that we can go to, to try it out and experience it firsthand.
