We believe women are natural leaders and successful women empower successful families.
Ingeborg Investments was founded by Olivia Walton and is dedicated to achieving top tier returns by investing in women.
“Ingeborg” is the namesake of Olivia’s maternal grandmother. The fund’s name and personal significance embody our mission to empower women across the United States.
I grew up in a family of strong women who ran their own businesses. I saw first-hand the freedom they had from controlling their own finances. All women deserve that kind of freedom.
When I entered the workforce as a journalist, I covered stories of incredible women who struggled to raise money for their business ideas. I also interviewed incredibly successful female investors who brought their own unique perspectives to taking risk and making money.
It’s a privilege to be able to bet on these women now through Ingeborg Investments.
