The financial and retirement planning process should not be
approached any differently for women than it is for men. An individual’s needs, goals, life stage,
risk tolerance, life expectancy, work history, age and other personal factors
should be considered when creating a financial and retirement plan.
However, as a group of women, the team at Craig Wealth
Advisors understand the unique financial and life challenges and opportunities that
women face because we are facing them ourselves.
- Women generally have longer life expectancies
than men so their nest egg needs to last longer.
- Women earn less over their lifetimes – not just
because of the “wage gap” - but because generally woman take on caretaker roles
throughout their lives: children, grandchildren, aging parents, etc. often
resulting in fewer earning years and a smaller nest egg than their male
- Women tend to be less willing than men to take
on investment risk. Often this is
because they don’t understand their investment options
We have developed financial strategies designed to address
these challenges and take advantage of opportunities when they arise.
Many of our clients are women that wear a variety of hats –
they are successful business owners, stay-at–home wives and mothers, full time
employees, primary breadwinners, single, divorced, married, widowed,
volunteers, caretakers to family members and much more. Like so many women, they are busy juggling
all the responsibilities these different hats require and there is often not
enough time to take care of their financial well-being or it is the ‘to do’
list item that keeps falling to the bottom of the list.
We are here to work alongside you to design the financial
portfolio you need and want while understanding the type of relationship you want
with your financial advisor team:

fully understand your portfolio and financial plan. With education as one of the

regular review meetings and check-in calls, our quarterly market report,
semi-annual newsletter and topic specific content that is tailored to your
