All told, what has an overwhelmingly male financial workforce accomplished? International Monetary Fund Chairman Christine Lagarde was one of many world leaders to remark that the 2008 crisis might have never happened if there were more women in high-ranking positions in global finance. Instead, all told, $19.2 trillion of household wealth was lost in America alone.

Considering it all, to me the future of finance should be female. It wouldn’t just be fairer. If these studies are any indication, it’s a future in which all of us would make more money.
