Women And Investing

women and investing special research report Photo by www.marblearch.com.au
These days, we have become used to and almost numbed by waves of fear and terror in the wake of market meltdowns and institutional collapse. When it comes to individuals making investment decisions, acting on fear is almost always wrong. Emotionally driven investing, motivated by the vicious cycle of greed (the hope of markets rising, the fear of markets falling) leads those without a strategy to buy high and sell low. As a consequence, when high-profile financial experts exhort the public to dispose of equity investments for capital needed in the next five years, we see a huge sell-off in the market. One wonders why ...
REVIEWS AND OPINIONS
Women and the NEM
While the NEM mentions empowering women and investing in childcare, Assoc Prof Dr Shanthi Thambiah said there had to be more concrete measures for poorer women. These women, she said, comprised the bulk of low-wage workers earning less than RM1,500 a month. “The bottom 40% of low-income households are largely women, single mothers or female heads of households whose husbands are in prison or on drugs. A lot of poor women would want to work but they can’t because they can’t afford childcare,” Shanthi said. Shanthi The NEM notes that 80% of households earn less than RM3,000 a month. Of this, the ... market research, surveys and trends

WOMEN AND INVESTING

Investing with Care - "Women and Investing" , the first of five ...
If you had to choose one word to describe female investors, it would have to be conservative. According to a new study by New York-based Simmons Market Research Bureau and co-published by MarketResearch.com, not only are women less likely to play the market than men, when women do invest, they are likely to avoid the riskiest routes. Released in August, "Women and Investing" is the first in a series of five reports tackling women's use of financial services. Upcoming reports in the series, all of which use data from the Simmons' fall 2000 consumer survey of 31,576 Americans nationwide will examine ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Invest Like A Woman? — Money, Matter, and More Musings
Just sharing some interesting statistics about men and women and their general attitude towards investing. The image below is supposedly based on Sharebuilder’s 2007 “Women and Investing Survey” as reported by Seattle Post-Intelligencer (I tried to search for the original survey on Sharebuilder’s website but could not find this particular (2007) version). It appears from the survey that more men are “confident” and “optimistic” about investing than women. Similar findings were published in a Sharebuilder survey last year in which it was reported that, in general, only 35% of women ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

In 2002 the Lozoff family took noteworthy action – they invested in research on women. Dr. Milton Lozoff and his daughters and their families established an annual prize in memory of their mother, Marjorie Lozoff. Why is this action noteworthy? An American Viewpoint opinion poll of registered voters found the overwhelming majority of both men and women do not believe there is a need to direct giving specifically to women; out of 11 categories of recipients only 3 percent said women should benefit more from charitable contributions than they do now. The Lozoff family chose not to follow what the majority of the people believe and ...

Sailing: women's sailing watch, countdown timers, countdown timer
For sailing I have always used a Casio digital watch. they all seem to have countdown mode (press the MODE button a few times and you see "TR" displayed, meaning countdown timer.) They are waterproof and cheap. Used to be you could get a "50M water resist" version for $19.95. Now they are harder to find. Also, many watches have become available that have larger digits, so are easier to read.  One I found is a Timex that has a colored ring around the face. You twist the ring to move from function to function. It also has a countdown timer. try the stores called APS and Layline. Both are on the web. Also ...
