One’s relationship with wealth and money is often fraught with challenges and intertwined with family expectations, identity and complex emotions. At MASECO, we know it is often difficult to talk about wealth, whether it is finding the right people to connect with on sensitive topics or finding spaces that allow for an honest and intimate exchange. 

For this reason, for the second year running, at MASECO we will be hosting our 'Female Voices' event in partnership with the Beam Network, in order to offer that safe space to our clients. The Beam Network is a global community of high-net-wealth women wealth holders who empower one another, through connection and financial education, to invest in line with their values and create a better world. We are delighted to be partnering with Beam and feel a real sense of affiliation to the network, as they share many of MASECO's values and vision for supporting women of wealth, as well as the bigger movement of closing the financial gender gap.

“We want women to have the confidence, knowledge and tools to take charge of their financial futures. We’re proud to be part of a bigger movement supporting the financial literacy of all women and closing the financial gender gap.”​

- Ana Morales, Co-Founder of The Beam Network

Our joint event, held on Thursday 14th September in a central London location, will be facilitated by Beam Co-Founder, Ana Morales, and the Beam Network’s Executive Coach, Elina Teboul. Participants will be guided through a process of self-reflection, and will be encouraged to lean into the conversations, however they feel comfortable. The session will allow time for discussion and questions, as well as offering unique networking opportunities to MASECO clients and prospects, in the aim of supporting and empowering MASECO's female client network.
