Britain’s gender investment gap tops £100bn

Ms Mackay added: "Our failure to engage women as long-term investors simply exacerbates a key problem we face – women are typically paid less, earn less and are also less likely to engage with the investment products which could deliver better returns for long-term savings.

"We need to tell people that investing can be for them, regardless of their gender, age or net monthly wage, or attempts to deliver equality in later life will fall short."
