Women Still Not Being Heard in Financial Services: Alpha Rising

Alpha Rising sat with UBS managing director Alli McCartney to talk entrepreneurship, inclusivity and why financial services is still failing women. Watch now!

As a women today, you can empower yourself and create your own track. Invest in yourself. Create your own life, says Alli McCartney, managing director at UBS (UBS) - Get UBS Group AG Report .

So female entrepreneurship is winning, as we have heard before from people like Sallie Krawcheck.

Because getting women to the top in corporate America, while necessary, still is hard because no matter who you are, your life is not your own. 

And women want more control, says McCartney, who has about $1.5 billion in assets under managment.

But it's not just about control of their own lives -- its about being heard and realizing that their point of view matters to sales and a company's bottom line.
