Women and ‘the new retirement’

A recent landmark study conducted by Edward Jones and Age Wave found that 54% of Canadian women define retirement as a new chapter in their lives. With the vast majority of women reporting that they want to be more involved in their finances and learn more about financial planning, and with women living longer and a major wealth transfer on the horizon, how can financial advisors better serve female investors? Edward Jones will share information about the study and how personalized advice goes beyond finances into the areas of family, health and purpose. A panel of financial advisors will address how they are helping female clients plan for and live well in ‘the new retirement’.
