The Gender Retirement Gap

We are fortunate to have Diane Garnick with us in San Francisco sharing the latest research on longevity and retirement.  Hear surprising research on the gender gap in retirement needs and planning. Many people save for retirement through their employer, who in turn applies gender-neutral saving rates, investment choices, and spending strategies in retirement. Intuitively this creates a sense of fairness, but this intuition masks the reality that many women face. Lifetime earnings and spending in retirement are anything but average for women. Consequently, the challenges women face are arguably greater than those confronted by men. Join us to understand innovations and new developments in lifetime income solutions within defined contribution plans.
