Capitalize Partners With The Mom Project to Empower Mothers Through Retirement Planning

Capitalize and The Mom Project have partnered to help the organization’s talent base find and consolidate their retirement accounts. Capitalize is the first independent platform to transfer retirement assets. The Mom Project is the leader in helping businesses attract and retain female talent.

Under the terms of the partnership, The Mom Project community of 500,000 women will get direct access to the Capitalize platform and rollover concierges to help find and consolidate old or lost retirement accounts, such as a 401(k), into a new individual retirement account (IRA) of their choice. This consolidation will help mothers easily keep track of and grow their retirement assets to achieve their financial goals.

“The Mom Project is committed to providing mothers with the resources they need to stay in the workforce, and it’s a mission we couldn’t be happier to support,” said Gaurav Sharma, CEO of Capitalize. “According to the Transamerica Institute, only 39 percent of women are confident they will have enough resources to last 25 years into retirement. Through this partnership, we’re excited to be a resource for change providing mothers with control as they plan for retirement.”

“It’s so important for mothers to be in control of their retirement planning – and to feel empowered when doing so, every step of the way,” says Allison Robinson, founder and CEO of The Mom Project. “We are thrilled to be working with Capitalize, because through this partnership, mothers will now have access to the extra resources needed in order to pave the way for a financially successful future for both themselves and their families.”
