Investing 101 for women

65934HBy Sarah Kingdon

(NC)—Women’s financial needs change throughout their lives. Whether they are planning a wedding, buying a home, having a child, funding education or retiring, their investment strategies need to evolve as they do.

“With a busy lifestyle, women often get stretched for time and miss focusing on their future financial success,” says Jennifer Ball, SVP, Franklin Templeton Investments Corp. “An investment advisor can help guide women through the financial maze as they encounter detours and roadblocks throughout their lifetime.”

More information on how to find an advisor is available at www.franklintempleton.ca.

In addition to getting good financial advice, experts advise women to ensure they can afford to live alone. Should the unforeseeable happen – such as divorce or death of a spouse – women with savings and investments are far more likely to have independent financial stability.

Regardless of where a woman is in her life, now is the time to create a financial plan.
