Hi, my name is Bronwyn, but you can also call me Miss Money Box. I started Miss Money Box as an educational blog to help Australian women expand their general knowledge around personal finance.
I’m currently undertaking my Master of Research in the discipline of Economics, Finance and Marketing at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT). My thesis is exploring the barriers women face in engaging with the investment services industry.
Thanks to my entrepreneurial dad, money has always been a big part of my life. I was running a successful cottage industry by the time I was 12 and quoting daily buy and sell movements on the stock exchange in my early teens.
I think the financial services industry needs to better cater to the needs of women, starting from the way superannuation and investment products are designed and marketed.
I’m not a financial advisor, but rather a financial advocate. I have had a varied professional career, with roles in education, journalism, research and marketing. I’ve studied postgraduate commerce and am particularly interested in the stock market and superannuation.
Miss Money Box is my effort to start a movement that sees women empowered to take control of their financial futures. I hope you’ll join me.
