Ask Sallie: Can I Invest in Other Women Without a Lot of Money? (Video)

By Sallie Krawcheck

If you’re like the 84% of women in a recent study, you’re interested in how to invest for impact. But say you want to put your money in funds that power positive social change by advancing women … can you get started with whatever you’ve got? Sallie’s got the answer.

Sallie’s answer:

I love this question. The answer’s yes. The answer’s yes, yes, yes.

At Ellevest, it was important to us to have no minimum on investing. Because investing had been — you told us it felt so inaccessible to you — we wanted to make it as accessible as we possibly could to as many women as we possibly could. From the first paycheck, after they pay off their credit card debt, that a woman has, she can begin to invest.

And at the same time, she can begin to invest in our Ellevest Impact Portfolios, which work to give a competitive return with a competitive level of risk and drive money into the hands of other women, which we believe has a positive ripple effect on society and on communities.
