Everyone can be an investor

When it comes to finances, I always encourage people to put their financial future into their own hands.  Importance of being financially safe was never higher as we live in a rapidly changing world. And unfortunately, in my point of view, many women’s attitude toward finance remains stuck in the past. Women must learn to budget, prioritise, save for retirement, their children education or hard days - if they will occur.

According to a survey carried by Wealthsimple, women overall invest 40% less money than men. As well study by Merrill Lynch and Age Wave states that 63% of women ages 18 to 29 say that financial planning is too difficult, not to mention that more than a half of women doubt in their ability to invest.

The start should be easy from simple steps to understanding the financial environment. As Marguerita Cheng, co-founder and CEO of Blue Ocean Global Wealth says: “Getting a better understanding about money takes work, but it doesn't have to be overwhelming. Equipped with the right attitude and education, women can feel empowered and confident about their financial future.”
