Women Investors: Taking Charge Now

Swapna Gopalan (Author)
Synopsis Financial literacy and financial autonomy are more important for women today than ever before. Financial independence gives a woman the power to make her own decisions and lead an independent life, regardless of her marital status. Recognizing this power of financial empowerment, more and more women have begun taking active interest in personal financial planning. This is a distinct shift from the earlier times when, in almost all societies around the world, women depended on men for financial support, and believed that they were incapable of handling money competently.Like men, today women are faced with numerous financial challenges, such as funding children’s education, getting adequately insured and ensuring sufficient savings for future financial needs, to mention a few. In fact, it would not be wrong to say that women are prone to more financial challenges and barriers than men. Illustrative of this issue is the fact that, women on an average tend to live longer than men, but generally earn lesser. Thus, they are faced with the arduous task of saving for more years of retirement out of a comparatively smaller resource base.This book on women investors presents the financial profile of modern women and the trends in their investments across the globe. It covers the financial obstacles and challenges that confront women, and the underlying causes of their financial anxiety. The book also serves as a money management guide for women.
