Across the board, clear majorities of women understand that greater financial knowledge can help create more security in life and better financial opportunities.  From our research, a majority of women express strong interest in learning more about finances and retirement planning.

Women whom have become recently divorced or widowed have come to the realization that there is a high need to be financially aware and independent. The number-one topic that most women want to learn about is how to have their preferred lifestyle in retirement.

Few women indicated that they have not started to save for retirement as yet and this lack of action may have huge implications for the future.
