Give a woman a dollar, and she can put it to good use. Teach her about how money really works, and she can change the world,” says Linda Davis Taylor, CEO and chairman of Clifford Swan Investment Counselors.
Why should women invest you ask.
Women are naturally nurturing and caring for their communities.
Imagine what powerful changes can happen when women also have the financial resources to take care of their communities.
Netflix's show, Self Made: Inspired
by the life of Madame C.J Walker , is a great example of why it is important for women to invest in themselves , their finances and dreams.
Women and Investments
Research shows that, out of all assets controlled by women, 71% is in cash. This is because women do not think they know enough about investments
and wait until they are older to invest. It is important to have a strong foundation before investing.
This is achieved by adapting finance principles such as saving, budgeting,
increasing sources of income and researching what you are to invest in. Knowing the basics to what you are investing in is key.
Remember to always differentiate between saving and investing.
