Women are great investors, but research indicates that we tend to lack confidence. Craigs Investment Partners' Head of Emerging Wealth Helen Skinner is here to share how she got into investing, and why more women might want to consider it.

Research we published in December 2021 revealed that 60% of women surveyed rated their investing literacy as low. Despite this, international research from Fidelity indicates that when women invest, we're good at it. 

Helen agrees, and in this video, she talks a bit more about some of the things that are hindering us from stepping into investing, and the behavioural factors at play.
