A Confidence Gap in Women

There is a confidence gap when it comes to women investing in a retirement portfolio.  Women are not sure about their ability to invest so they tend to take a more passive approach in financial matters.  This is the wrong way to look at the situation because women already have 2 things against them, compared to their male counterparts.  First, women make on an average of 20% less income than a man doing the same job.  In addition to the wage gap, women generally live longer than men.  

When a woman doesn’t take the full financial picture into consideration, she is neglecting her future financial security because she will have less money to invest with a longer period to protect.  It’s a hard situation to be in but it doesn’t have to be that way.  How does a woman fix the situation so she can have the needed money to take care of herself?  The one strategy may be to get more aggressive with your investing, girlfriend!
