    Hi, I'm Mara, the founder of Financial Parenting World. Economist by background (Dr. Rer. Pol. Summa Cum Laude, Fribourg University, Switzerland), I am a senior leader in Finance, trained at Harvard and IMD. I have over 21 years experience in wealth management, working with billionaire families across Europe, and driving social & digital innovation across the financial industry on a global scale.
    My journey in finance led me to focus on my biggest passion: Financial Parenting! I spent years exploring what wealthy parents are most concerned about: how do I teach my child the value of money, and ensure they grow up with good money habits?
    Today, I am pioneering new ways to help all parents be their children's best Money Role Models. I hope to see you in my FINANCIAL PARENTING MASTERCLASS: the world's first and only comprehensive financial parenting course on money, ethics and impact, with everything you need to shape your kids' financial future!

    Course reviews

    I knew this would be on a high level in terms of quality, but it was stellar! It raises awareness for a very important aspect of parenting.
    Clear and concise, a loud call to action for any parent. We can all do better when it comes to financial parenting. There is a lot to learn!
