Gretchen Betts

Managing Director & Financial Planner

Certified and Chartered Financial Planner

Magenta Financial Planning

South Wales

Gretchen is both a Certified and Chartered Financial Planner. In 2016 Gretchen set up Magenta Financial Planning in South Wales.

Gretchen is passionate about attracting more women to Financial Planning as a profession and breaking down the taboos associated with women talking about, and understanding, how to manage their own money and their future.

Gretchen is keen to facilitate conversations around topics which sometimes are not comfortable – to enable businesses strive to be and do better in regards diversity and inclusion, for the benefit of future clients and new entrants to the profession.  She’s about to launch a podcast all about this and admits herself that she’s still learning about the issues we face – and how much further we still have to go as a profession.

Out of work Gretchen enjoys all things art and craft and cats! Her Persian rescue cat, Basil, has a massive twitter following – over 20k and acts as Magenta’s Fluffy Motivator.  He doesn’t give financial advice!
