WMNomics was born of the idea that women deserve access to unbiased financial education and professional money management.
Even better, let’s put a little peer pressure on the system by joining our dollars to invest in companies that do right by women +.
We’ve spent over a decade studying Womenomics and Gender Lens investing, and our team collectively has 100 years of experience in the financial services industry.
WMNomics IS THE IDEA THAT WOMEN’S FINANCIAL ADVANCEMENT WILL IMPROVE THE ECONOMY AS A WHOLE.
Women tend to consider the long term effects and the social implications of their investment decisions. When you couple that with an understanding of risk, women outperform male counterparts by an average of 40 basis points (.40%).

Chief Investment Officer, Jason Britton, set out to understand how a world that creates more food than it needs, has more wealth now than at any point in human history, and has technological advancements never even imagined, could still have poverty, racism, gender wage gap, and complicated social constructs.
Jason received his undergraduate degree in behavioral economics from Georgetown and went on to complete his work at Yale. He dug into what would need to happen to bring global socio-economic prosperity and equality.
50% of the population are women. In most developing nations women are both the solitary caregiver as well as the single source for agricultural products/nutrition for their families. In the developed world (US) women are more than 50% of undergrad and graduate degrees, significant (or even majority) of both associate roles at law firms and on Wall Street, but when you fast forward 10 years, they are less than 20% of partners in either.
Why? Because they take time away to perpetuate our species and provide life, nurturing, and sustenance to our future. For this, they take unpaid leave, are passed over, and make a maximum of 80 cents on the dollar.
Jason has spent his career dedicated to the math and the cause. He is a prolific writer and speaker and his grand thesis?

Jason has spent his career methodically creating a process for evaluating securities and managers for their alignment with various value’s based issues. His work in the Gender Lens space is no different.
Jason spent six months working with the two largest women’s foundations in the United States; The Women’s Foundation of California, and The Women’s Foundation of Texas. He held focus groups, community meetings, researched and ran thousands of data points and scenarios on what it meant to be a “good” investment to and for women:
Companies that were thoughtful deploying women as strategic human capital.
Companies that were building products that were for the specific benefit or advancement of women.
Companies that were proactively engaging women as employees; as consumers, as thought leaders.
This painstaking research and focus was used to individually select the US equity composite of the WMNomics portfolios and the managers that complete the investment allocation.
Jason has selected Interactive Brokers as our custodian. They require no commissions, no custody fee, and no minimum. This provides WMNomics the ability to build models and fully digitally onboard clients. The option of fractional shares and models allows us to offer scale through models inexpensively and easily.
Most ESG (Environmental/Social/Governance) or SRI (Socially Responsible Investing) managers charge 1-1.25% and typically divest away from companies rather than building models of companies to include.
Most wealth managers have a 3 to 5 million dollar minimum.
Most digital/robo advisors offer only canned portfolios of existing vanguard or BlackRock products with no commitment to values or customization.
None of the above offer content and community for women by women with long careers in banking and finance.
Our commitment to WMNomics is to offer the highest institutional quality investment advice comprised of investments specifically curated to support and advance women. Some are low-cost partner ETFs and some are hand selected individual equities. Our low-cost flat fee asset management model is taken quarterly and in arrears from the account directly.
Our goal is to become the most accessible and economical fully focused women’s solution on the street and to influence the global economy with our collective financial power.
