The journey continues
In 2018, UBS embarked on a groundbreaking study of US women. It started with the recognition of two major trends impacting women: increasing life expectancy and the rise of “gray” divorce. This meant that, at some point in their lives, 8 in 10 women will end up alone and solely responsible for their financial well-being.1
When we spoke to women living this reality—widows and divorcees who were financially responsible not just for themselves but for children, loved ones, even family businesses—we uncovered a deep well of regret. 98% of widows and divorcees urged other women to participate in long-term decisions early on.2
So we wondered … were women heeding their advice? In this age of #metoo, women’s empowerment and progress toward greater equality, were things actually changing? In short, not enough.
The behavior persists even though the majority of women—and men—believe equal financial participation is necessary for true gender equality. But there are signs that women are ready to own their worth.
