It has been brought to my attention that I misquoted some statistics in this piece on millionaire females back in April. I stated that a piece of cebr research (reported in The Telegraph) found that in 20 years’ time more women than men would be millionaires.

In fact I confused two separate findings of the report; that in 20 years’ time women would hold 60% of all personal wealth, and that currently two age groups of UK millionaires are more likely to be female than male (18-44 and 65+). This was a genuine error. I nevertheless stand by my wider point that, whilst a handful of women excel, the reality is different for the majority. Apologies for any confusion caused.
