As a woman, understanding how to invest is crucial for your future. Think about it – women tend to live longer than men. According to Scientific American, “Women outlive men by around five to seven years.” This means that by age 85, there are about six women to every four men. And yet, according to the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, over 45% of women aren’t too confident or aren’t confident at all when it comes to their retirement savings. Compare this to 35% of men who aren’t confident. It’s important to NOT be a Novice Women Investor.
