Do women invest differently than men?

Radio Smart Talk for Tuesday, August 21:

Do women invest differently than men?  The answer from most financial advisers is yes.  A recent survey from Investment News indicates that women are more conservative and cautious when they invest.

It’s an important issue too because on average, women will outlive their husbands and will need more savings to retire on.

Based strictly on averages, women earn 76 cents to every dollar a man is paid and spend about ten fewer years in the workforce to raise children or care for an elderly parent, so saving for retirement is even more important.

Appearing on Tuesday’s Radio Smart Talk will be Tara Mashack-Behney, the Director of Investment Consulting with Conrad Siegel Actuaries in Harrisburg to discuss women and investing.

Do you have question about saving for retirement or other investment questions?
