Less than 15% of U.S. financial advisors are women and that’s way too few, especially when more clients are asking to work with women advisors, according to a recent report in the Wall Street Journal.
Many people looking for a financial professional feel women are good listeners and can better understand and address their money concerns.
It may be a stereotype, but women advisors are perceived to go far beyond basic financial tasks like recommending a good investment or helping you save for retirement. Women focus more on educating clients about key financial choices, and understand how investments and spending can impact your family’s financial goals. It’s about more than coming up with a solid financial strategy. It’s about coming up with a successful strategy that fits your lifestyle and gets you where you want to go.
