Gender Gap Seen with Financial Savings and Financial Education

Financial Finesse writes about a gap that exists regarding women accruing retirement capital and gaining confidence in personal financial management; causes for the gap versus men include less comfort with traditional means of communicating financial products in-person and online; women (therefore) being more conservative with novel asset classes; as well as women living longer and requiring more savings; the article reports that “the bottom line is that women need to be saving more and at a faster pace than men to meet their retirement income needs.”; their survey finds that only 20% of women feel the financial sector “truly hears their needs.”  Source
