Why Women Should Invest And How To Get Started

As of late, we hear a lot about inequality and gaps concerning women: gender pay gaps, career gaps. Whether deliberate or unconscious, these gaps make it difficult for women to move ahead. 

One gap that isn’t discussed enough is the investment gap between genders. Statistically, women are less likely to invest, and even those who do invest tend to wait until they are older to start. A common misconception around investing is that you have to be an expert in the industry to succeed when the reality is that there are so many tools and resources that make it easy to start investing with as little as your pocket change.

This leads to a mindset where women think they don’t know enough about investing to properly grow their savings; therefore, they wait until they feel they’re more financially stable to start investing. 

Reasons why every woman should invest?

  1. Financial equality
  2. Reaching financial goals
  3. Saving for retirement
