Your Life Priorities: Women and Investing

Take hold of the financial reins.

You do so much for so many. You’ve earned the right to make you and your financial future a priority. It’s time to take a seat at the financial planning table and an active role in the management of your family’s wealth.

As women, we think differently about money, ascribing far greater significance to longer-term goals such as retirement and legacy planning. But we also face a very different reality. Our incomes continue to lag those of men, yet we live longer and therefore need to save even more. It’s a challenge that requires a fresh perspective and one to which SunTrust advisors are keenly attuned.
