Women on the Rise

Women on the Rise Conquering: Unique Retirement Challenges. Financial success is a goal for many, but women face unique barriers that can make that goal more difficult to achieve. Understanding today’s financial landscape can help women rise to the challenge, know their worth, and take control of their futures.Daunting Realities Although history has seen some significant progress for women over the last century, there’s still a long way to go toward financial equality. Women make 80.5 cents for every dollar their male counterparts make in a similar job. (1) The average Social Security retired worker benefit for women is $14,928 per year, compared with $18,780 for men. (2) 46% of married women in their 50s in two-income households are at risk of being unable to maintain their standard of living in retirement. 32% of married women in their 50s in one-income households are at risk of being unable to maintain their standard of living in retirement. 39% of single women in their 50s are at risk of being unable to maintain their standard of living in retirement. (3)Enormous Potential The truth is, women wield a huge amount of influence over the economy, and their impact is only likely to grow. Women control 51% of all personal wealth in the United States today. (4) Over the next 40 years, women stand to inherit $28.7 trillion in intergenerational wealth. (5) On average, women save 9% of their salary. That’s almost a full percent higher than men. (6)Increasing Impact The numbers don’t lie: more women are successfully founding and leading businesses than ever, with impressive results. There are 114% more women entrepreneurs than there were 20 years ago. (7) The number of businesses owned by African-American women has grown by 164% since 2007. (8) Businesses founded by women deliver 2x more revenue per dollar invested. (9)Support for the Journey While we can’t create economic equality overnight, we can help make sure every woman is fully equipped, supported, and prepared to pursue her own unique goals. Let’s get to work, together. Sources: 1. Columbiathreadneedleus.com, 2019; 2. SSA.gov, 2018; 3. Forbes.com, July 10, 2019; 4. Georgetown University, 2018; 5. Visualcapitalist.com, March 4, 2019; 6.
