Spotlight on Financial Planning for Women
At Fish and Associates, our team takes a special interest in empowering women to actively engage in the advisory relationship and become focused participants in the process of planning their financial future. The statistics are clear: women live longer. As women, we need to get comfortable with the fact that we will likely be on our own for part of our lives. In my opinion, depending on men to manage every aspect of our financial lives is not a healthy recipe for peace of mind. Yet, so many of us may still believe that our man is our plan, and as a result, we lack the confidence and knowledge necessary to plan for our own future.
Too often, women are sidelined in the important conversation about the state of their finances. Whatever your current situation – single, married, divorced, or widowed – it is crucial to educate yourself on your present financial realities and plan for the future. It is never too late to start. We care about financial planning for women because we know how important it is to your future.
In my opinion, most women do not accumulate money for the simple sake of having money. Rather, we want to achieve security and manage our assets in a way that will help us meet specific life goals. Reaching these goals requires focusing on the present and being fully aware of the obstacles and opportunities available to you.
So, where should you start?
