International Women’s Day is to recognise the achievements of all women. However, it is important that we continue to look forward and improve future outcomes of women.

This was the theme and goal for the panel discussion at Morningstar’s International Women’s Day event in Sydney. Given the disparity in retirement savings and outcomes between genders we focused on using superannuation as a tool to improve the lives of women. I was joined by two esteemed financial services professionals – Rachel White, Head of Adviser Services at Vanguard, and Dominique Bergel-Grant, Founder and Financial Adviser at Leapfrog Life.
