Investment Strategies for Women

March 30, 2022

Local investment advisor Nancy Dienes with Arrivity Financial Planning presented a program on March 30, 2022, which highlighted important financial strategies for retirement and beyond with a lens specifically focused on issues and trends that matter to women. Subjects included life expectancy, caretaking responsibilities (especially for aging parents), kids in college, and retirement plans.

This program embraced a culture where women could talk and share insights about investment strategies without judgement.

Below is a video from the event.
