To mark International Women’s Day 2023,  Emma Waddingham, Editor of Legal News Wales invited Rachel Mathias, Investment Manager at  RBC Brewin Dolphin’s Wales office, to see if women are taking charge of their financial future and why they should be.

The F* Word podcast is a series of frank, honest & informative podcasts on one of today’s conversational taboos – *Finance (see what we did there?) presented by Legal News Wales, with RBC Brewin Dolphin.

Rachel and Emma explore if there’s a difference between how men and women approach their finances – whether that’s in discussions with friends or in a formal financial planning context, and what can happen to women in retirement / later life if they don’t have a voice at the table when it comes to planning ahead in their personal life.

The aim of this podcast is to help you feel confident about your financial situation to help you achieve your life goals and to support other women around you to do the same. Rachel’s profile can be found below.
