Women and Investing: Confidence Today and Tomorrow

Women and Retirement

Women must be ready to spend, on average, more years in retirement than men.

At our firm, confidence is more than a belief or attitude.  It is the realization that our clients have the opportunity to design the life they want and to live the life they want.  All of our clients are unique and are presented with different challenges.  

Our team recognizes some of the unique life situations that face our clients who are women.  Our knowledge goes beyond understanding what research has told us regarding women and wealth.  We have life experiences of our own to lean on and guide us.

“When I was young, we lost our father. What followed for my mother were years of financial struggle. It was very hard for her to provide for us and fund her own retirement shortfall. It was the cause of much financial stress and the incentive for me to learn how to plan financially for myself and others so that no family should have to experience this kind of pain in their lives. As a son, a father, and as an advisor, I share the feelings of struggle and lack of fairness for women returning to employment, for those that have divorced their spouse, and for those who have lost their spouse to sickness or tragedy.”  –Joe Budd

“When I was married, my husband and I held different views on how we should save for retirement. I felt it was important to start early; however, my husband believed that we should put any extra money we had back into our family business. So, I started to educate myself about investing and retirement planning and began to set money aside into a retirement fund. I did not know it at the time, but I was adhering to the principles of “diversification” and “starting early.” I now have the confidence that when I do retire, I will have the potential to live out my retirement years comfortably.” –Margaret Anderson
