Income & Growth Investing

Despite all the progress made over the past few decades, there’s still a gap between women and men when it comes to earning money. What this means in a larger sense is, as a woman, you may be starting behind the 8-Ball when it comes to saving for retirement.

Given lower lifetime earnings potential and greater longevity (women are outliving men by 8 years on average), smart women strategize to even the playing field — especially when it comes to laying the foundations for reliable income streams in retirement.

Investing for Women

Remember, size of portfolio wins in retirement. The larger your nest egg, the more income potential you’ll enjoy. Therefore it may make sense for you to expand your horizons outside of traditional retirement products to help build your overall portfolio value.

Women and Income Statistics*

  • Two out of three workingwomen earn less than $30,000 per year.
  • Nine out of ten workingwomen earn less than $50,000.
  • Half of all women work in traditionally female, relatively low paid jobs without pensions.
  • Women retirees receive only half the average pension benefits that men receive.
  • Women’s earnings average $.76 for every $1 earned by men––a lifetime loss of over $300,000.
