Closing the Gender Wealth Gap The Finance Cafe

    • Entrepreneurship

In this episode Shannon sits down with Kristine Beese, founder of Untangle Money, to discuss the gender wealth gap, and what we can be doing to close this gap. They discuss what compelled Kristine to create Untangle Money, why taking a gendered approach to finances is so important, myths around women and money, and financial tips for women. 



Kristine helps companies foster stronger relationships with the women and fems who work at their firms. By offering a women-centric approach to financial literacy, not only does Kristine reduce women’s biggest source of anxiety; she also helps companies demonstrate their commitment to gender-equality and helps their employees feel seen.



Kristine is a former national pairs-figure skater who brings tenacity and bravery to her role as a founder of the fintech startup Untangle Money. A problem-solver by nature, her P.Eng. helps her look at problems from a first-principles perspective. And with over a decade of experience in the finance industry, she brings the strategies employed by high-net-worth people to the masses.



As a woman and a mother, Kristine has learned through lived experience in male-dominated industries that women experience the world differently from men. This is especially true of our personal finances. As such, it was critically important that the solution that we developed at Untangle Money worked for women and is grounded on women-specific data.
