Host Douglas Isles launches the second season of the Investing for Life podcast with Nicolette Rubinsztein, non-executive director, actuary and author.

An advocate for mothers and work/life balance, Nicolette was named one of Australia’s top 10 most powerful part-timers. She successfully balances motherhood with several board positions, and her passion for giving back by volunteering at home and abroad. In her former career, Nicolette was a General Manager at CBA and Colonial First State.

She was president of the Actuaries Institute in 2019, holds an executive MBA, is a fellow of the AICD, an ASFA Lifetime member for her work in superannuation policy, and author of the book Not Guilty – a guide for career mums.

Throughout this insightful and honest interview, Douglas and Nicolette unpack her successes using a framework modelled on Platinum’s time-tested investment principles.

Listen to this conversation to:

  • Hear Nicolette describe the devastating setback of five miscarriages, how she navigated this enormous challenge and, importantly, how it has strengthened her today;

  • Learn about the long-term view she has held to ensure she remains on the right path, including advocating for part-time roles, investing in herself and leaning into what energises her – giving back through her charitable pursuits; and

  • Hear how she embraces qualities that help her stand out from the crowd: her feminine strength and kindness.
