Women and investing
Take the journey from savvy savers to smart investors
Empower your financial well-being
Women have transformed the investing landscape in a big way over the past couple decades. With the rise of female entrepreneurship and growing female participation in the workforce, improving financial literacy for women is more important than ever. When these women unlock their economic potential and access equal opportunities, they contribute to their community’s development and participate in the country’s economic growth.
Women’s financial literacy is not only the key to helping them achieve their potential but an essential driver of economic growth and vital to India's growth story.
However, when it comes to financial planning by women, we are still a long way from achieving financial gender equality. According to data gathered on women investors by an online wealth management platform, out of every 5 investors in India, just 1 is a woman.
Here we seek to encourage women to be financially independent and how financial independence can be a stepping stone towards achieving their goals. Some of the top motivators for women to kick start their financial journey are as follows: a) Building a financial security for family b) Hedging against inflation and beating financial crises c) Bolstering status in social circle d) Growing money over long term e) Saving for retirement f) Supporting a venture or a cause.
A study has been found that on a global average women earn 23 per cent less than men for the same quantum of work. This may indicate larger, systemic challenges facing women today, such as pay disparities, gender disparities or the financial burden of caring for young children. Some of the other challenges faced by women are lack of fund, expertise and time, insufficient fund, hesitation to take risk, fear of losing capital as they have mistrust in financial product and concerns about potential future crises
