Women invest

Alison Pyott speaks about impact investing at a Northern New England Women’s Investor Network seminar Wednesday, April 17, 2019, in Portsmouth.

PORTSMOUTH — With women expected to control $22 trillion in personal wealth by 2020, female investors gathered on the Seacoast last week to explore the power of impact investing.

Alison Pyott, partner and senior wealth manager at Veris Wealth Partners in Portsmouth, started the conversation Wednesday by asking the group of about 45 women to think about social issues that are concerning to them. That could include forest fires, flooding, poverty, the refugee crisis or any other global challenge.
