We have all heard the statistics – women now make up more than 50% of the US population1 and are making 80% of the purchasing decisions in US households.2
Now think of this, close to 30% of businesses are owned by women and the number of wealthy women investors in the U.S. is growing at a faster rate than that of men.3
Our economy is greatly impacted by women yet there is a relatively low percentage of women in the financial services industry available to help them.
It’s time for that to change.
As a woman, it is in your DNA to nurture and take care of others which makes a career in financial services a natural fit for you. As a financial services professional, you get to apply your skills and make a difference in the lives of others by helping them plan for their future and protect what matters most.
A career in the financial services industry empowers you to take control of your career and have the flexibility and independence you may be looking for.
What are the job requirements:
- Entrepreneurial spirit
If you don’t have a financial background, that’s ok – that can be learned. More importantly, according to the above statistics, you have a natural market to tap into. If you are considering a new career, don’t overlook the opportunities in financial services.
