Investing for Women
While most women manage the daily finances of the home, women are far less likely to invest than men. Women need to plan and have a long-term investing strategy and think beyond short-term money matters. How do you know when to start investing? That will be based on your earned income and savings that you can put aside and not need to pay down debt with.
The best ways for women to kick-start their investment strategy is to start asking questions, read and begin to explore various companies and investment opportunities. You may like to start exploring companies that are meaningful to you, that are women-run, women-focused. There are specialized funds investing solely in female founders that may be of interest.
Savvy Ladies is here to help educate and share resources and guide you to gain the knowledge you need to learn and make smart financial decisions. We offer a library of informative webinars, blog articles, a helpful budget worksheet, and mentoring with our team of professional financial volunteers for 1:1 support.
