Money & Relationships

Linqto Learn 2023-01-19 Landing Page (1)

About this event:

In this session we are so fortunate to have Janine Firpo, Dr Ruth Shaber and Sheila Shroeder in dialogue discussing the differences in how men and women traditionally think about investing, spending money, saving money, money in general and how this might affect our lives and our relationships.     

Given that 45% of marriages end in divorce in the US, and money issues are the No. 1 thing that couples argue about, this is a worthy conversation to have. Numerous studies have identified disagreements over finances as one of the top reasons couples seek marital counseling, as well as one of the top reasons for divorce. And we know that families are often reluctant to talk about money with their children, but experts say that can create confusion and insecurity. So thankfully, they’re going to share how to successfully engage in financial conversations and collaboration with partners, parents, children, and others.  

However, it's not a secret that people involved in committed relationships tend to perform well, maybe even better, financially. Can a stable relationship help you achieve your financial goals? Ultimately, money can either build or break relationships so how can we make sure we avoid the later? After this conversation we expect to come out with a better understanding and a clear mindset of what’s actually important and what we should pay attention to keep building relationships instead of breaking them, after all relationships and money tend to come hand-in-hand.

Janine Firpo, Co-Founder, Invest for Better

Janine Firpo is a writer, angel investor, impact investor, and social entrepreneur. Ever the pioneer, Janine became a computer programmer in 1981 in a very male-dominated early-stage industry, and later in 1995 she became one of the first social entrepreneurs exploring how to do good socially while doing well financially. She has been on a personal mission to invest all of her money in alignment with her values as well as focus on how women can create a more just and equitable society through their financial investments. In partnership with over 40 female financial experts, she wrote Activate Your Money: Invest to Grow Your Wealth and Build a Better World”, a groundbreaking book that provides the support women need to take control of their money, become confident investors, and to take the actions required to shift their assets into alignment with their values. Activate Your Money delivers the depth of information you need to make informed decisions across your entire portfolio and offers a uniquely woman-centered approach 

Dr. Ruth Shaber, President & Founder, Tara Health Foundation

Dr. Ruth Shaber co-wrote “The XX Edge: Unlocking Higher Returns and Lower Risk” with Patience Marime-Ball. The book explores a new paradigm of gender-focused investing where more women are placed in decision-making roles and able to optimize their skills across all capital markets—leading to higher returns for individual investors and greater economic growth.  Dr. Shaber created the Tara Health Foundation in 2014 after more than two decades working on the frontlines of women’s health care at Kaiser Permanente. The California-based OB/GYN has since invested more than $70M in companies that help improve women’s health and in 2020 she made the Forbes’ Impact 50 list. 

Sheila Schroeder, Regional Head of Business Development, Wealthspire Advisors
