Investing Your Way - Women and Investing
An increasing number of wives are out-earning their husbands, but women often must take a time-out from working, resulting in reduced savings.

While men and women often have similar financial goals, they often need to approach investing differently, so their journey toward those goals can take a different route. Learn to recognize the challenges they face and how to educate them about their options.
