Global Conference 2011
Women's Leadership Forum<br>
<i>By invitation only</i>
Tuesday, May 3, 2011 / 9:00 am - 10:45 am
This session will focus on the intersection of women and finance. Financial planning has too often taken a one-size-fits-all approach, and women in particular have not received the tools and education they need to make informed investment and savings decisions. With longer life expectancies, women need their retirement savings to last longer, so different strategies are clearly in order. The growing trend toward single motherhood and the high divorce rate have both underline the need for women to take greater charge of issues like educational savings and estate planning. How can the industry better customize its services to meet women's needs? How can we empower women of all socioeconomic levels to become more financially literate and control their own financial futures?
