I’m Crissi Cole, founder and CEO of Penny Finance, a personalized and tech-powered financial mentor that provides real-world financial education and know-how to women at the starting line of their financial lives.
Before Penny, I worked for over ten years in wealth management at Goldman Sachs where I invested in ultra-net-worth portfolios and built trading & technology platforms. Over and over again, friends, family, colleagues (in the industry!!) would come to me for financial advice. One thing was clear: there’s a problem. The education gap, pay gap, wealth gap…GAPS! I’d hear it all the time. Well, what are we going to do about it?! So, off I went to do something about it.
People say Penny is my first born. Well, my first-born-human is my baby girl, Charlie. When I’m not building, I’m soaking her, family and this precious first year up for all it’s worth. It’s been incredible (and wild).
Ask me anything about financial wellness, being a founder and a mom, small ways we can tackle the pay gap at an individual level, or anything else!
