Your Fave Ellevest Moments of 2022

 

At Ellevest, we spend all year making sure you have the tools and resources you need to thrive financially. In 2022, some days that meant publishing a guide on how to convince your employer to cover reproductive health. Other days, it meant posting an American Girl doll meme.

See, our community contains multitudes. We need our hot girl walks and our f*ck-you funds in equal measure. We rage at the Supreme Court’s devastating injustices while celebrating its newest member’s journey. And while so many things didn’t go our way this year, we’re doing our darndest to trust the process. To play the long game. And we think that seeing how far we’ve come — what we’ve gotten through together — is part of that.

That’s why it’s our tradition to round up the articles and social posts you, our Ellevest community, loved best this year. Explore them all at the link below.

Women’s financial health got worse in November

Although the Ellevest Women’s Financial Health Index had seen marginal gains over the last three months, it dropped back down to 1.1 in November 2022 — essentially matching the rock bottom it hit back in July. Oof. Click through to read what happened.

Money Tip of the Week

All this FTX stuff might have you wondering: Wait, do I know how my money is insured? The good news: Whether it’s saved in an FDIC-backed savings account or invested in an IRA, your buck$ probably have backup. (As in, if your bank or brokerage bites the dust, that’s a them problem, not a you problem.)

Read up on how Ellevest protects your assets when you invest with us. And if you’re curious, check out this Wall Street Journal explainer on how and why investments like crypto are not insured.

The Fed raised interest rates again (but it could be worse)

The bad news: They’re up to 4.25%, the highest they’ve been since 2007. The not-so-bad news: Looks like the Fed might be cautiously optimistic about 2023. Get the full breakdown on Fed interest rates and how they impact you in our lil 101 on Fed interest rates.

“I don’t want glossy affirmations about how I can still look good at 40; I want to know how to navigate a career change without spending another decade in school while caring for school-age kids and still paying my steadily mounting bills.”

279 volunteers with gun-control group Moms Demand Action — 86% of them women — ran for office this fall, in 42 states. And *more than half* of them won. Read this piece about it if you need some heartening news. (And don’t we all?)

Did you know there were more women shareholders than men at AT&T and General Electric before the 1929 stock crash? This article about the sexist history of corporate governance is chock-full of fascinating trivia.

You can probably guess our first reaction to this story about eight men investors accused of pump-and-dump stock trading. (It was something along the lines of, “Finance bros gonna finance bro.”)

Oh, hello! We were featured in WTFintech, the fintech newsletter from Workweek! It dives into some of the changes we’ve made in the past year as a company (not to mention compliments us a few times — we’re blushing).
