Biography

Jane Barratt is the founder & CEO of GoldBean. She is a long-term investor and champion of financial literacy.

Jane spent more than 20 years driving growth for Fortune 500 companies, including many Financial Services institutions. Her frustration with the disconnect between personal consumption (which drives the economy) and personal finance (from which only the wealthy benefit) inspired her to become a registered investment advisor, to apply a more empowered, personal and data-driven approach to investing.

There are plenty of services for the already-wealthy, and for the confident investors – but for people looking to build their confidence, knowledge and eventually, their money – there is a lack of simple, low cost, education-first advisory services.

Jane has lived and worked in six countries, and is endlessly fascinated by the cultural differences when it comes to money and investing.  Her courses on Lynda.com have helped thousands of people, all over the world, gain a deeper understanding of personal finance and investing.

GoldBean is an ‘investing for beginners’ platform that gets people started with their first portfolio. It’s a modern, data-driven take on the Peter Lynch motto ‘invest in what you know’. The  GoldBean mission is to educate and empower clients to be confident, self-directed investors . GoldBean is an SEC registered investment advisor that provides algorithm-driven advice, education and access to low-cost trades, all on hellogoldbean.com
