The Swedish Investment Fund Association is set to publish results of research into trends among women fund investors, on 7 March, ahead of International Women’s Day on 8 March.
The Association says that because average female salaries and average pensions are lower than men’s, it is even more important for women to save. However, it is an even greater challenge simply because of those two key factors.
In response, the Association together with Kantar Sifo has put questions to women to identify whether they save through funds, and if so, what proportion of their salaries and in what types of funds. They have also investigated to what extent women and men rely on their own knowledge of personal finance.
The same questions have been put to men to compare.
“We can state that there are several significant and interesting differences that we believe are important to highlight from an equality perspective,” the Association stated ahead of the publication of the findings.
InvestmentEurope will publish the full findings as they become available.
