When it comes to investing for the future, women face unique concerns related to work patterns, longevity trends and the wage gap. A sound financial plan can be designed with the goal to successfully surmount these obstacles and enable women to pursue a more comfortable, secure retirement.
So what is a woman to do when faced with these obstacles? First, don’t despair. The disadvantages above are not unsurmountable. A sound financial plan can be created with the goal of combatting and overcoming these obstacles.
Talk with a financial consultant. As with any goal, professional advice when it comes to saving for a comfortable retirement may make it more likely that your efforts will be successful. And professional financial advice doesn’t have to be expensive, either. Many financial consultants – like those on Alliant’s Retirement and Investment Services team – offer a no cost, no obligation consultation so you can gauge where you are currently and what strategies may help you improve your financial situation.
Account for longevity via diversification. Consider whether a woman’s – or a married couple’s – retirement investment mix should be different to account for the longer life expectancy of women.
Ongoing steps. There are some ongoing actions you can take to help ensure your retirement security.
Alliant Retirement and Investment Services can help you develop or fine-tune your retirement plan.
