Hi Val, as a fellow female in personal finance, I wanted to ask, has being a female in this male dominated space ever affected your perception of your ability to grow PolicyPal?

Wondering if it's been exceptionally difficult for females to succeed in this arena of personal finance?

    Hi Anon,

    While it is true that most that work in the financial sector tend to be males, I believe that women can thrive in the personal finance space as well and I have seen many do so. Individual capabilities rather than gender determine how well one can do in this sector.

    In recent times, we have also seen an increase in recognition for women entrepreneurs. We are starting to see more females entering the tech world. When I first entered the industry, there were few females in the tech space. Today, we are seeing more successful female founders in the ecosystem, which is great to see as it means there is a stronger support system for aspiring female entrepreneurs.

    It is never easy to succeed in anything and it’s no different in the finance world. It's clear that women’s entry into this field is neither a new or isolated event. More than ever is being done to get women to enter the field.
