Women, Wealth, and Well-Being Webinar

The McIntire School of Commerce Ivy Society Women’s Networking Group invites you to join us for a

Women, Wealth, and Well-Being Webinar
Led by Elizabeth Koehler CFA (McIntire '03), Managing Director, BlackRock

This webinar is free. Space is limited.

Women are projected to own $72T of total global private wealth by 2020. They are the breadwinners or co-breadwinners in the majority of homes, and at some point in their lifetimes, most will be solely responsible for their finances. However, many women tend not to see themselves as investors and 43% of women haven’t started saving for retirement. Based on widespread research, we know that women WANT to be financially secure and feel confident about investing. They want to balance different goals, invest to fulfill those goals, and learn about financial opportunities.

Regardless of where you are in your life journey, there are key steps you can take to help maximize your wealth and well-being. Join us to discuss what wealth means to you and how to look beyond the newspaper headlines when investing. Learn how to get organized, get invested, and move closer to achieving your goals.
