Building the World’s Best Independent Advice and Education Platform for Women with Olga Miler [Ep53]
Welcome to episode 53 of The Innovating Advice Show.
I’m joined by Olga Miler, co-founder of SmartPurse which is empowering women from all over the world to build each other up and reach new heights of financial independence.
In this episode, Olga, who co-founded and developed UBS Wealth Management’s award-winning global female program and the Gender ETF, shares why she co-founded SmartPurse, the global impact they’re seeking to make and how financial advisers around the world can leverage the platform to grow their own businesses.
We also chat about Olga’s current research around women and money which, despite being a highly researched topic has had really slow progress, and how she’s hoping to change that.
And finally, as an expert in gender-smart investing, we chat about what that means and why advisers should be more knowledgeable in this area.
