We're here to help women build wealth so that they can live the lives they want — because when women control their own money, everyone is better off.
Our journey building a woman-first financial company began in 2014 with a team of industry experts with decades of experience on Wall Street — even as we were told "women don’t need their own investing platform.”
Today, with a community of more than 3 million,** a $53 million Series B funding round, tens of thousands of people using Ellevest, and $1.5 billion in assets under management, we get that statement less often.
What grew from an idea to make investing more accessible for women now permeates the company and the way we design our offerings. We’re committed to making sure that underrepresented groups are overrepresented — among our employee base, our board, and our investors.
Fueled by our shared belief that there’s a better way to serve women, we’re building a company that helps you take action with your money and build the life you want. And it’s unlike any other out there.
We’re committed to driving change as a company — from the talented people we hire to our diverse board to the people and institutions who invest in us.
