Women and Wealth

Let Us Help You With The Tough Conversations


At some point in their lives, 90% of women will be solely responsible for finances,1 and nearly half of women – 44% – are the primary breadwinners in their households today.2 But with only 27% of married women saying they “take control” of financial and retirement planning,2 already, how prepared are your clients for this responsibility?

Janus Henderson’s Women and Wealth programs provide advisors with best practices for working with female clients during difficult life transitions as well as actionable and timely financial planning strategies for their clients to gain confidence about what lies ahead.

Women face a unique set of challenges when it comes to achieving financial security. Associate Retirement Director Marquette Payton discusses how Janus Henderson’s Women & Wealth events foster an environment where female investors can speak openly about their experiences with money and learn the value of working with an advisor. The events are designed to educate female clients on a variety of topics ranging from estate planning and social security to life transitions.
