Stop Being Afraid of Investing and Start Making Money
By Nancy Mann Jackson
Women are more likely than men to be hands-off investors, which allows them to stick to a long-term investment plan instead of reacting impulsively to small market fluctuations. For instance, a study from automated investing platform Betterment shows that female investors sign into their accounts 45 percent less often than their male counterparts and change their asset allocation 20 percent less often, resulting in better long-term returns. Because women approach investing more passively, they are naturally more positioned to succeed in the market.
