Two Woman wants to save Banking
Can women bankers and investment managers get us out of the economic mess that their male colleagues got us into? Will it take women to ensure the future health of the financial sector? Halla Tomasdottir and Kristin Petursdottir are convinced the answer is yes. They set up their investment firm Audur Capital in Iceland to prove it. So should the boardrooms be filled with women now?
A world of only women would be just as imbalanced. We need a balance between men and women to make healthier decisions. Halla and Kristin set up Audur Capital in 2007, with Kristin as CEO. They are running a successful company till now. The reason the male-female balance matters, is that women, they argue, bring different values to the table.
