Despite the fact that many women are managing their retirement plans, many brokerage firms fail to offer online educational resources for this target group, according to a new report from Corporate Insight.
The research company recently examined the websites of 17 major brokerage firms. “About one third of the firms we looked at failed to provide any information at all on the topic,” said David Rosenberg, a senior analyst at Corporate Insight. “Of the firms that did provide information, most were unsuccessful in their attempts to provide clients with a well-rounded supply of content. Only a handful offered sections or articles designed explicitly for women.”
Corporate Insight’s 42-page report is called “Women & Investing: Helping Venus Escape from Mars’ Shadow.”
