Episode 43: Do Women Make Better Investors?


Are women better investors than men? Is gender-based performance a real thing? What can we learn from research to improve our investment returns?

In episode 43 of the Science of Economic Freedom, I spoke with Laura Cuber, CFP® and Client Advisor in our Chicago branch, to talk about men, women, and money. Laura talks about her experience as a female advisor and working with women clients

Laura walks us through some of the research she has found about women, money, investing, and the impact of gender. Topics included in this episode:

• Gender-based performance, what is it and why do women outperform?
• Do men trade more than women and if so what is the impact on their long-term return?
• How do women’s risk aversion impact their decisions?
• What we can learn about women and investing behavior
• The value of a financial plan and how women tend to focus on this plan more than men
• Actions steps you can take today to get started on your path to Economic Freedom
