What we do

The Beam Network is created for women, by women and for investors, by investors.  We believe that women deserve greater involvement in the management of their wealth and finances. Our purpose is to be a catalyst for change, a women's network that educates and connects to promote inclusive and sustainable economic opportunities.​

* We are not professional investors or certified financial advisors, we concentrate solely on education. For financial advice based on your individual circumstances, we suggest you speak to an independent financial advisor directly.

Women's financial lives are typically more complex than men's with career patterns, parenthood, divorce, and longer life spans. These differences require women wealth owners to be more engaged with the management of their investments through their lifetimes.
