The SavvyWoman Podcast is sponsored by Addidi, which is the voice of women’s wealth. Addidi plans and manages wealth to enable you to live a richer life.
Why was Addidi specifically created with women at its heart? Because, firstly, an unprecedented number of women have now achieved success and wealth, yet for many this has not translated into happier or more balanced lives. Secondly, many women are put off by the financial services industry with its focus on hard sell, opaque products and the bonus culture.
Anna Sofat, Addidi’s founder, believes that it is vitally important that as women create success and wealth for themselves they are also happy and balanced so that they can fulfil their pivotal nurturing role at the heart of their family and community.
