The Growing Wealth of Women
In honor of International Women's Day on Wednesday, March 8, we at HollisWealth Inc. along with some help from Fidelity Investments Canada, would like to highlight the incredible financial strides women have made over the last five decades. Did you know that Canadian women now control nearly $1.2T - roughly one third of wealth in Canada? And by 2024 that figure will increase to $3T, or almost half of all wealth in Canada.*
In keeping with this year’s theme for International Women's Day, we hope to encourage you to #BeBoldForChange on March 8 and inspire our female clients to become even more engaged investors.
Here are some excellent articles courtesy of Fidelity Canada that we thought were appropriate for today.
