- To mark International Women’s Day 2021 we’ve created a list of the top 50 investing websites created by women

Welcome to the Invezz Top 50 Female Investing Blogs 2021 – chosen for you, by us.
International Women’s Day lands on March 8th, and we thought it was about time we put together this list of the best financial websites and investing blogs created by women. Finance is still a world dominated by men and these websites are all part of a movement to change that.
Are you looking for fast-news, hot-tips and market analysis? Sign-up for the Invezz newsletter, today.
Many of these websites are run by women, most of which are successful investors. Their sites are packed full of easy-to-understand financial advice that’s applicable to everyone. Others are designed specifically for women, redressing the balance that’s been created by decades of financial advice written just for men.
Whoever you are, all these blogs are worth reading. Whether you’re new to the stock market and trying to understand how it all works, or looking for a new way to invest your money, there’s something in here for you.
We’ve divided up these blogs and websites by category and applied three main criteria to determine who made it into the list. This criteria are:
- Relevancy: We only selected blogs and websites that are related to investing, written by women, and regularly updated.
- Quality: The platforms on our list are all of a very high standard and provide helpful information for others who are interested in learning more about investing.
- Layout: We valued user experience highly in our selection criteria and only chose blogs which made helpful financial advice easily accessible.
All that said, it was very close, and everyone on the list is a must-read. So without further ado, here are the best financial websites and investment blogs written by women, along with a short summary of each one.
