1st Influential Women in Banking & Investments Forum (7 November 2013)
Financial literacy refers to an individual's ability to make informed judgments and effective decisions about the use and management of his/her money. It is often observed in the academic and industry literature that there is a gender and a confidence gap between men and women with respect to financial literacy and retirement savings. Women are different from men when it comes to financial planning. Perhaps women face higher financial hurdles than men due to longer life expectancies, higher lifetime health care costs, lower median savings and lower median income. While being more risk averse than men, women have been shown to be better investors. Yet, the confidence gap persists. The panel discussion will discuss these issues, including whether financial literacy is necessary for independence and financial empowerment.
