PICTURED: Davinia Tomlinson

NEW FINTECH start-up Rainchq, has officially launched to the general public and is a new concept in financial services, designed exclusively for women by black businesswoman Davinia Tomlinson .

The company aims to tackle the gender investing gap by promoting greater financial inclusion and will provide financial education, events and access to qualified and regulated financial advice, delivered by FTSE 100 company, St James’s Place Wealth Management.

Founded by Davinia Tomlinson, whose previous career in marketing within the investment management industry for companies managing hundreds of millions of pounds of assets on behalf of clients, Rainchq is designed to address the typically low proportion of female investors overall.

More than a decade since the start of her working life and two children later, Tomlinson saw that the number of women investing for their futures hadn’t significantly improved and decided it was time to do something about it.

Tomlinson, CEO, and co-founder said: “My own personal experience has shown me that the financial services industry is not designed with women in mind, as the low numbers of female investors demonstrate.

"As a mother, like many, I returned to work part-time, which obviously had a knock-on effect on how I invested and yet there was no advice tailored to my situation. The goal of Rainchq is to tackle the challenges specifically faced by women, most notably the gender investing gap, gender pay gap and financial advice gap - and to provide women with tailored guidance on what to do with their money as well as access to best-in-class investment products.”
