Women & Wealth Magazine Spring Issue 2020

May 26, 2020
In this issue of Women & Wealth Magazine, we highlight 20 incredible women, new trends in the philanthropic space and communicating with children about digital currency.

We hope this issue of Women & Wealth Magazine finds you and your family safe and healthy. As we navigate COVID-19 and all of its myriad implications on how we work and live, at Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH), we have found comfort in taking action in alignment with our core values – serving our clients with excellence and supporting BBHers all over the world, even as 96% of us work remotely. We began this issue before COVID-19 became part of daily life, but as we weather this crisis, there may be no better time to highlight the accomplishments of 20 incredible women, many of whom are leveraging their time, ties and talents to support their communities during this turbulent time.

Our feature article is one of our favorite annual segments: 20 Women to Watch in 2020. From founders of highly successful businesses to women at the helms of the country’s most impactful philanthropic organizations to a New York Times best-selling author, this feature holds our most diverse and powerful group of women yet. We are honored to spotlight how several of these women and their organizations are contributing to COVID-19 relief efforts.

Over the course of the last decade, the philanthropic landscape has also changed dramatically. Senior Wealth Planner Kerri Mast discusses the shifting landscape of philanthropy and impact, including the rise of international giving and impact investing.

The beginning of this new decade seems like an opportune time to reflect on the strides women have made over the past 10 years, and in this issue’s "By the Numbers” infographic, we examine the progress that women have made in the past decade across numerous domains. During the last decade, women have added $37 trillion to their personal wealth globally!

In our latest guide to talking to children about money, we explore the complexity of teaching the value of digital currency. Where we store and spend money is increasingly online and in the cloud, so it is important to educate children about the value of this money that we cannot see but that represents real value.

In “Learning to Launch,” Relationship Manager Laura Salibello and Analyst Maddy Pellow define the basic principles of investing and share how parents can incorporate them into preliminary conversations with aspiring young investors.

Finally, in “Five Questions,” Eve Rodsky, the New York Times best-selling author of “Fair Play: A Game-Changing Solution for When You Have Too Much to Do (and More Life to Live),” shares what motivated her to write a book “she was born to write” about achieving equity through rebalancing household responsibilities.
