Hardly any other woman in Germany has been committed to financial education for women as long and as intensively as our co-founder Karolina Decker.
After two master’s degrees and a 10-year career in international banks, Karolina has been committed to supporting women on their path to financial independence since 2017 with the non-profit organization ‘Mind The Gap’ and since 2018 with finmarie.
Karolina is a certified financial investment broker and holds a business license according to §34f GewO.
The topic of finance for women has accompanied Cindy Mergener since her training at Commerzbank in 2014.
After several years in the private customer sector, she started her own business as a financial advisor and has since supported over 100 female customers on their way to financial independence. It is precisely this expertise that Cindy brings to finmarie today as a Senior Financial Consultant.

Yes, we make special notes about what situations are particular to Germany and which ones may apply to you if you live in other countries, so you can participate in the finmarie Investment Academy from abroad as well. We want to offer as many women as possible the opportunity to learn to invest through our course.
Our Academy primarily focuses on financial education for women, non-binary, and transgender individuals. Learning to invest is important for everyone, but since the financial world often caters to cisgender men, we aim to create a protected space within the finmarie Investment Academy to allow the opportunity to learn, ask questions and invest without barriers.
We aim to remove the hurdles that disenfranchised people face with their finances and show everyone that investing is not rocket science. We also address inequalities such as the gender pay gap and the gender pension gap and, most importantly, how we can collectively work to counteract these effects as a community.
If you are already highly advanced, have a solid investment strategy, are well-versed in various investment vehicles, and already have a well-established portfolio, we would not recommend the finmarie Investment Academy for you. If you still want to make some changes or seek expert advice, you might find more value in our personalized finmarie Financial Coaching.
We also want you to benefit from the finmarie Investment Academy immediately. Therefore, we consider it unprofessional to recommend a course for learning investment if you have high consumer debts.
If your goal is simply to get rich quickly, then this program is also not appropriate for you. Our focus is on holistic wealth-building for women with long-term success, and we want you to understand your finances from the ground up.
You have access to all the content for 12 months.
The time required can vary somewhat depending on the week and topic. Generally, you should plan for about 1 to 2.5 hours per week. The finmarie Investment Academy consists of video courses that you can watch at your own pace, tasks, and also live Q&A sessions with our financial experts.
We offer various options, usually once during the lunch break at 12:00 PM and once after work at 7:00 PM.
