UK Managing Director at eToro, Iqbal V. Gandham said,
“This research suggests that in many cases women want to invest but don’t know where to start. This no longer needs to be the case. Technology has transformed the investment world from a small, opaque club into a community that anyone can tap into. This should be to the benefit of prospective female investors.”
