MEDIA RELEASE 03 May 2010
Women need to wake up and realise that a man is not a financial plan
Why is it that women are so reluctant to take control of their own financial
planning says financial planning expert Sunshine Estivo. "I've been working in
this industry for ten years and find that women are really reluctant to talk
about money and don't plan for their financial future.
"I bought my first investment property when I was 23 and my investment portfolio
has grown from there. I was however very unusual partly because of my age, but
also for my gender.
"So while many of my friends were waiting for Prince Charming to come along I
was planning my own financial future," said Estivo.
"The fact is that women can generally expect to live longer than men and yet
most have less superannuation or investments for retirement than their male
counterparts. It's really tragic that, of all the elderly people living in
poverty, three out of four are women and 80 per cent of the women were not poor
when their husbands were alive.
"That's why I focus on working with women long before they reach pre-retirement
because it's generally too late to do anything significant about it by then. So
I focus on wealth accumulators in their 30s and 40s.
"We're holding a seminar aptly titled 'A man is not a financial plan' that will
teach women how to identify the keys to wealth creation and guide them towards
financial independence," she added.
The evening seminar will provide women with the information they need to start
their own financial plan, for themselves and for their families as well as
empower them to be independent and financially savvy.
Financial Empowerment Coach Linda Coates is the presenter and is passionate
about encouraging others, particularly women, to take a proactive approach to
maintaining their wellbeing - financially, physically, mentally and spiritually.
