Halla Tomasdottier talks on feminine values and financial planning

Halla Tomasdottier quit her male dominated financial job and with Kristin Petursdottir started Andur Capital in Iceland, the country that didn't do so well in the last crash.  Not only were they successful, but their clients didn't lose everything when the market went south. The reasons she shares is perhaps why companies do better when they have more women in upper management and on their boards. 

Her talk below expands on:

  • Risk Awareness
  • Straight Talk
  • Emotional Capital
  • Profit with Principle

While she proposes that more feminine values should be used when managing others money, she also is an advocate for "embracing the beauty of balance" and creating business that is more sustainable. Translation: we need both male and female traits at the decision making tables.
