Women juggle a lot of roles. For the most part, women are known for their multitasking skills when it comes to managing a home and a career. But according to Financial Times, women are less likely to play the stock market. 

Despite many women’s ability to shoulder the burden of family finances — from budgeting, to paying bills, to even refinancing the home — most are hesitant to put their money to work in stocks, shares or funds

Financial planning tips for women

If you are a woman (and there is a good chance you are if you are reading this article), then financial planning is for you. Financial planning is for everyone. Here are three reasons for you, as a woman, to consider working with a financial advisor:

  1. Build your financial confidence — For many women, the idea of investing in the stock market is overwhelming. Where do you start? What if you lose your hard-earned cash? That is why you should consider working with a financial advisor. They can help you begin your financial planning journey as a woman.
  1. Increase your net worth — You are busy enough with running your life and probably helping to run a few other people’s lives too. So, it’s time to make your money work for you to increase your network. Partnering with a financial advisor as your guide can help you grow your money and increase your net worth.
  1. Map out your future — You have goals. A financial advisor will help you identify your dreams and aspirations and work with you to forge a financial plan to help you get there. Try to start by putting 10% of your income aside for savings and investment opportunities.
