Women and Retirement

Women face unique issues that can make retirement more of a challenge. We are more likely than men to interrupt our careers to care for family, live alone at some point in our lives, and we typically live longer.* Whether retirement is 20 years away or just around the corner, the best time to start planning is now. I can help you plan for a more confident retirement. My goal is for you to have a sense of well-being about your financial future.

Do you know your tolerance for investment risk?

When it comes to investing, risk and reward go hand in hand. The higher the risk, the higher the potential return, but also the greater the risk of loss.

Risk tolerance refers to your ability to endure market volatility. All investments come with some level of risk so it's important to be aware of how much volatility you can tolerate. How risk tolerant you are is important, because it is one of the basic factors in determining an appropriate investment strategy for you. Your risk tolerance can affect both the types of investments you own and the way you choose to diversify your portfolio.
