Women are the ones to watch in wealth management

Is this a Missy Elliott track?

Nah, it’s a McKinsey banger. 

A report from the consulting giant found:

  • Younger women are getting sh*t done in corporate America.

  • Women are willing to pay for in-person advice… if they feel a connection with their adviser. 
  • Women tend to be risk-averse with their portfolios, focus on life goals like retirement, and are interested in financial literacy and community outreach.
