Financial Planning for Women It has become all too common that the specific needs of women’s finances go overlooked. After all, the challenges that women face when planning for the future are far different than those faced by men.Women who are single, widowed or divorced face the challenge of identifying the needs that must be addressed today while setting and working toward goals for tomorrow. These can often seem like impossible tasks for women in transition.While women have longer life expectancies than men, they generally earn less over the course of their lifetimes; on average, they spend time out of the workforce either raising children or caring for parents. Adding to this the responsibilities of caring for a family or dealing with a sudden-wealth-event, and financial planning can feel hopelessly confusing.At Aspen Wealth Management we know that each person has their own individual needs and that the financial planning needs for women are often even more complex. As we listen to your concerns and answer your questions, we will arm you with the knowledge that you need to have as a woman dealing with finances.
