The Long Run: Women and Retirement

The Long Run: Women and Retirement

December 09, 2022

For women, retirement strategy is a long race. It’s helpful to know the route.

What do you want out of life? What’s important to you? What kind of future do you want to build?

You have so much to focus on in the here and now. It can be heard to think about tomorrow. But there’s no question, the choices you make in the here and now will shape the future, both for yourself and the ones you love. There’s no doubt that women face unique financial challenges. On average, women tend to live longer than men, accumulate lower lifetime earnings, and face higher health care costs. But your ideal financial strategy is based on knowing what you want out of life. What you want your future to be like. And what you can do right now to make that possible. Sometimes, we need to take time to look after what matters. Whether it’s the family we have or the family we build. So, if you know where you want to go, how do you get there?

First, set clear goals for your future and share them with your advisor.

Continue to educate yourself on best practices for your investments and review your financial strategy often.

Most importantly, whatever your goals, remember you are not alone. We are here beside you, celebrating every win.
