Women And Financial Management
(KPLR) – Women live longer than men and have to plan for themselves and their children after being widowed or divorced. But when it comes to finances, women still look for someone else to take care of it. Some experts call it the “female financial paradox.”
Although 90% of women consider themselves to be the money chief at home by paying all the bills, when it comes to investments, they reach out to others.
Brigid Jones Mook, with Acropolis Investment Management, says women need to see money as a tool to reach goals and get more involved in their own financial choices.
