Women lack financial confidence about the future
A new study found that women tend to lag men in wealth accumulation and could fall short as much as $1 million in savings compared with men. Women may have less money to invest due to a wage gap and breaks from the workforce to take on caregiving responsibilities. Women may also be hesitant about investing, with only 52% reporting they are confident about managing investments, compared with 68% of men.
