As life expectancy increases, women in many countries are likely to live into their nineties. In response, women need to focus more than ever on their long-term financial needs, such as planning for retirement, long-term care and insurance.
Our research shows that women who participate in long-term financial decisions not only increase their chances of financial security but feel more positive about the future.
Make a fresh start. Together, we’ll help you put the right financial plan in place.
Did you know?
Our research1 revealed that many women delegate long-term financial decisions – such as investments, pensions and insurance – to their spouses when they get married. That’s risky. As life moves on, different circumstances and events can force women to take control of their finances – when they’re least prepared to do so.
But it’s a different story for women who share decisions with their partners about long-term finances. They feel confident about the future and their money today, and they’re better prepared for whatever might happen tomorrow.
Few life journeys are neatly mapped out. More often, life presents us with forks in the road and detours. We take on these challenges because they enrich our lives – even if some of them are less welcome than others. But one thing remains true: a long-term asset development plan that safeguards your wealth will prepare you for many of life’s twists and turns.
Whatever phase of life you’re in, know what to keep in mind when it comes to your finances.
