The founder Arfy Majeed is a chartered accountant. She has held several senior financial roles including Vice President of Finance at various investment banks, hedge funds and finance houses.
She is also the co-founder and business partner for a number of companies. Previously Arfy mentored women in middle management positions and female led businesses.
‘Know Your Numbers’ was founded after mentoring business owners who did not have the financial education to manage their cash flows and profitability. After doing her own research Arfy also found that 95% of a sample of women in affluent positions did not know how to trade stocks, know what an ISA was or how to calculate VAT correctly. Subsequently she wanted to create a hub where members can access financial education and be part of a community that provides knowledge on investments and wealth.
“It was such a pleasure to welcome Arfy Majeed onto our Diploma in Beauty Brand Business Management as a guest speaker. Arfy has so much knowledge and experience to share on financial planning and I know that our huge community of start-up beauty entrepreneurs will benefit for many years to come from the interview I conducted with Arfy in our award-winning online training platform.” Lorraine Dallmeier, Director of Formula Botanica
Arfy delivered the opening speech for our event at Magnify House, London, in May 2019 to a sold out event for approximately 30 women. The theme of the event was ‘Finding your purpose’ and Arfy captivated the audience with her story on the sequence of events that took place for her to promote financial literacy for women. Her talk was moving, motivational and extremely well received. Following the event there were numerous requests from delegates for Arfy to speak at their future events. We would highly recommend Arfy as a motivational speaker on financial literacy and as an expert on personal finance and investment. Going forward, we look forward to working with her again.
Arfy Majeed delivered an expert motivational session at our wellbeing seminar in March 2019. Her talk was about financial health and the importance of financial literacy. It was very insightful and we enjoyed listening to her. Arfy had a wonderful style and the group connected to her immediately. We would highly recommend Arfy’s services to organisations that are keen to promote financial wellbeing.
Arfy was one of 3 members of the panel at our event on Financial Well being hosted by Thompson Reuters in Jan 2019. We were particularly keen to get Arfy as we had seen her speak before on a mentoring course where she had taught the financial basics of business. At the event Arfy was very inspirational and the audience were in awe of her case for why financial well being is just as important as our physical well being. She handled all the questions asked by the audience with confidence and provided her expert advice on their questions in relation to investing. The event was very well received and the feedback was very overwhelmingly in support for more advocates like Arfy
