Women in Wealth Reception:

Empowering Women to Own their Financial Futures

Over the last half-century, women’s roles have evolved and changed, and while strides have been made, women still fall behind men financially in terms of earnings, investing, and retirement savings. As an advisor, you can help empower and educate your female clients on the best ways to fulfill their financial potential. While traditional investing programs have ignored the unique experiences of women that impact their financial lives, modern plans acknowledge the unique circumstances that impact women more than men, including caregiving, gray divorce, and widowhood. Whether you are just starting your career, redefining wealth, planning philanthropic giving, or helping your clients retire, there are steps to help your clients become more confident and empowered when dealing with finances. Walk away with actionable takeaways that allow your clients to take charge of their financial futures at any life stage.
