Financial Advice for Women






   As more women enter the workforce, they earn enough to spend, save, and invest. They also feel the need for professional financial advice. They need to develop plans for their retirement, to settle their estates, to invest in the equity and financial market, and to save as much as possible while paying their taxes. They may need advice in investing their assets or they may need a financial advisor to take investment decisions for them. As a working woman, or as a homemaker, you may need to heed to the following financial advice: * Begin with an assessment of your financial position. This is important, whether you are at the beginning of your career, are planning to get married, are already married with children, or are nearing retirement. What are the financial goals you wish to achieve? Do you want financial independence for yourself, your partner, and your family? How soon do you need to achieve these goals? Once your assessment of your financial position is ready, you can begin to make plans. * Make a habit of spending money only on essentials and saving as much as possible. Make a monthly budget and stick to it. Try to avoid debts by limiting credit card use for essential purchases only. Consider all the implications before taking a loan. * If you want to marry or retire in the near future, you need to begin planning and saving for it as soon as possible. Financial planning becomes even more essential when you and your partner decide to have children. You will need to make long-term financial plans for children's educational needs or to settle your estate. * Nowadays, employers no longer offer retirement benefits, so it is up to you to plan your retirement wisely. Begin your investment in a good pension plan early enough to enjoy a comfortable retirement in your old age. * You will need to learn about the equity and financial market to invest your money wisely. You may need the help of a financial advisor in the early stages, but you need to read financial books, reports, and articles to learn about shares, mutual funds, and bonds to make the right decisions. * Learn about and invest in insurance schemes, health plans, and bonds that give you tax benefits. This will help you and your family members if anyone falls seriously ill and has to be hospitalized over a long period of time.
