We're Jude & Olga

Over the past 10 years, we have built one of the largest global communities of women and have transformed many financial services companies.

After talking to thousands of women, we learned that there is no safe and welcoming space for women to discuss the money questions impacting their lives and to get practical help. 

With a team of global thought leaders specialising in gender equality and finance, we set out to change that - to revolutionise the way women discuss and plan their money. The result is SmartPurse, together we've got this!
