Why do we need female financial advisers?

We've all heard the phrase 'people buy people'. But does this really apply to advising different genders? After all, a great financial adviser can deliver great financial advice to any client, regardless of their gender. But it is also true that there are additional benefits to an advice firm that can be gained by having a more diverse team. Moreover, there are sometimes particular sensitivities that women might face which would mean they are more comfortable with a female financial adviser. Talking to Simoney Kyriakou, senior editor for FTAdviser, for this In Focus podcast are Paula Hodge, chartered financial planner at Old Mill, and Zoe Dagless, senior financial planner for Vanguard Europe, who explain that greater diversity can bring greater strength.
