A female touch in banking, DIY and fashion
In banking, Citigroup is making waves with its Women and Company service. Launched as a pilot in October 2001 in Chicago, New York and Florida, and now available nation-wide in the US, the service is aimed at women under 55 with at least $100,000 in investable assets. An annual $125 membership fee gives members access to an advisor from Salomon Smith Barney or Citicorp Investment Services, newsletters and seminars, and special rates for mortgages, child care facilities and saving funds. Following in WomenandCo’s footsteps is Malaysian Affin Merchant Bank, which set up a new division exclusively for female entrepreneurs in January 2003.
