Financial wellbeing: We can do better

Date: 10/08/2017
Time(s): 12:00 - 13:00
Categories: Webinar

Financial wellbeing has been high on the agenda for some time now. But is it really working? Almost two years ago, we released some research which said that rents were rising, mortgages were getting more expensive, consumer debt was increasing, and there was a real need for financial wellbeing in the workplace.

So, what has changed? Not a lot.

Our webinar, hosted by Gethin Nadin and joined by incredible guests, Gabbi Stopp and Gemma Godfrey, features a different take on everything you thought you knew about financial wellbeing. They’ll be discussing the benefits of Save As You Earn (SAYE), Share Incentive Plan schemes, financial literacy, and fintech.

About our guests

    Gemma Godfrey is the Founder and CEO of Moola.

Advisor to Arnold Schwarzenegger on The New Celebrity Apprentice, Gemma co-presents the new ITV show "Eat Shop Save" and is a consumer champion on Good Morning Britain, BBC Breakfast and Sky News. She was named one of the “Most Powerful Women in London” by CityAM. With a background in quantum physics, Gemma previously headed Investment Strategyfor a publicly-listed wealth manager with £8 billion of assets. 

Her firm, Moola, makes investing simple. The service enables employers to enhance the financial wellbeing of staff and the employee experience.

Featured by The Times as a "route to the best financial advice", Moola offers members the chance for their money to keep up with the rising cost of living, with guidance and flexibility. Removing the jargon and traditional obstacles in financial services, the service makes money matters relatable and improves financial literacy. Cutting edge technology means that what once required tens of thousands of pounds, can now be tried out with a minimum account size of just £50. The process is simple enough to be completed in minutes, with easy access to the money. 

Gemma was the Head of Investment Strategy at Brooks Macdonald, Chairman of the Investment Committee at Credo Capital and a Fund Manager at GAM, after starting her career at Goldman Sachs. She is a Board Advisor to Templars and CLU School of Management. 

   Gabbi Stopp is Head of Employee Share Ownership at ProShare.

Her working life began in share registration, corporate actions and dividend planning at Lloyds Registrars (now Equiniti). When completing the ICSA Company Secretary Qualifying Scheme, she chose to specialise in share plans, as she realised the wide variety of different corporate functions that in-house share plans would give her access to. She served an 'apprenticeship' in managing large-scale all-employee share plans at Tesco, which set her up ideally to run global share plans at Pearson, in around 90 countries. From there she moved to share plans at Barclays, with global scale, complexity and banking remuneration regulations all wrapped into one Gordian knot. 

Roles in operations management and account directorship followed at Capita, where she worked with great clients at interesting stages in their corporate life - a mix of newly IPOed and mature established listed companies. 

Right now she is head of ProShare, and is privileged to work every day with the most inspiring plan issuers, administrators and advisers across the whole UK share plans industry.
