After decades of focusing on why women weren’t investing, the broader conversation is shifting to why — and how — women are growing their wealth. We’re kicking off another fantastic year of important conversations with HerMoney’s champion from day one, Kathy Murphy. She’s the president of personal investing at Fidelity, which is out with new research on women and investing. A finding we’re thrilled to hear: Over 70% of women say it’s time to demand more from their money and that they’re going to take action in the next six months. Let’s join them! Kathy tells us how. In Mailbag, Kelly and I answer your questions on Social Security, opening up a Roth IRA and buying a house in the current market. Plus: We know women are more likely to take career breaks for childcare — and now we have an idea of how much it can cost them. We discuss in Thrive.
Happy New Year HerMoney! Goodbye 2018 and goodbye investing confidence gap.
