Michelle O’Keefe, Head of Wealth at Goodbody – Ireland’s first female Head of Wealth – on the importance of investing for women …
As Goodbody’s Head of Wealth, it’s my job to help all investors succeed and grow their wealth. My entire career has been centred around finance and wealth management and I absolutely believe everyone needs to understand how to invest.
Investing is a vital part of creating longterm financial comfort and decent retirement savings. Women tend to be far behind their male counterparts when it comes to levels of income at retirement stage and much of this disparity is as a result of women having very few investments. I’m really keen to ensure that we take far greater control of our finances and close this investment gap. Not only will this mean greater financial freedom but it will translate to a far better quality of life and wellbeing.
I know that women are increasingly interested in buying stocks and shares, but often lack the knowledge and confidence to get started. At Goodbody, we are committed to addressing this and are actively reaching out to women to become more engaged with this process.

I am genuinely delighted to be involved in the creation of the THE GLOSS X Goodbody Funds Night In Investment Club as it will give members the chance to dip their toe in the water without taking on risk. Participants will get the chance to buy and sell virtual stocks, create a fantasy investment portfolio and benefit from investment education and tips on how best to invest. Hopefully there will be a lot of laughs along the way. We look forward to the first event on October 13.
Join THE GLOSS X Goodbody Funds Night In Investment Club
Investing and wealth management can be a stressful topic for women, with traditional channels somewhat blind to women’s needs. THE GLOSS X Goodbody Funds Night In Investment Club will create an opportunity to help women make the most of their money, advising them on practical financial planning, showing how best to construct a robust investment strategy and improving their overall financial fitness. During six virtual events, Goodbody investment experts will cover topics including financial literacy, share picking and investments, retirement planning, inheritance, and creating a rainy day fund for unexpected life events. You will be encouraged to believe in your abilities, and to have the confidence to take the next steps. Join up! www.thegloss.ie/goodbodyinvestmentclub
