Our Story

As a team of co-founders we’ve dedicated much of our careers to building the financial power of women. Now, with your help, we’re looking to shake up the super industry.

Australian women retire with almost half the superannuation of men (ABS, September 2019). It has taken a Royal Commission to tell us the obvious - our current financial system is broken. And too often, it's women who pay the price.

It's time for a completely new way of thinking.

Verve is designed by women, for women. Our free financial education and guidance is tailored for you, our member events and webinars are a great chance to meet like minded women.

We’re excited about joining forces together as a community, to start using the $1 trillion that Australian women hold in super to invest in companies building a better world for women, our community and our planet.*
